News   Clive Owen and Douglas Hodge Discuss Revival of Old Times, "One of Greatest Plays in Last 100 Years" (Video) A video celebrating the upcoming Roundabout Theatre Company revival of Harold Pinter's Old Times has been released.

Directed by Tony winner Douglas Hodge, the cast will be led by Golden Globe winner and Oscar nominee Clive Owen making his Broadway debut in the role of Deeley.

Todd Haimes, Hodge and Owen introduce the revival of the play, which has not been seen on Broadway since 1971, in the video below.

Owen will be joined by Olivier Award winner and Tony Award nominee Eve Best as Anna and Olivier Award nominee Kelly Reilly as Kate. The production will begin previews Sept. 17 prior to an official opening Oct. 6 at Broadway's American Airlines Theatre.

Best returns to Broadway following her Tony-nominated turns in The Homecoming, directed by Daniel Sullivan, and Moon for the Misbegotten opposite Kevin SpaceyReilly has twice been nominated for Olivier Awards. In 2004 she was nominated in the category of Best Actress for After Miss Julie at the Donmar Warehouse, and in 2008 was again nominated for Best Actress for her portrayal of Desdemona in Othello.

The Roundabout describes Old Times as "the unsettling drama of desire and blurred realities by Nobel Laureate Harold Pinter. Owen is Deeley, a man quite looking forward to meeting Anna, his wife Kate’s friend from long ago. But as the night goes on, Anna’s visit quickly shifts from an ordinary sharing of memories to a quiet battle for power. Douglas Hodge, a frequent performer and director of Pinter’s works, directs the haunting and passionate revival." Roundabout has a longstanding relationship with Harold Pinter, having staged ten productions of his work since 1971, the most recent of which was The Caretaker which starred Patrick Stewart, Kyle MacLachlan and Aidan Gillen (2003).
