'Old Times is a joyous, wonderful play that people will talk about as long as we have a theatre.' New York Times
'What am I writing about? Not the weasel under the cocktail cabinet... I can sum up none of my plays. I can describe none of them, except to say: that is what happened. This is what they said. That is what they did.' Harold Pinter
Old Times was first presented by the Royal Shakespeare Company at the Aldwych Theatre, London, in June 1971.
