"Memory and reality collide in Old Times, as three friends recall their relationship from 20 years prior," according to STC. "What do their memories tell us and which interpretation of the past do we believe? Old Times is an intimate and highly-charged exploration of whether we can truly know another person, or even ourselves."

This production marks the STC debut of all three cast members: Holly Twyford as Anna, Steven Culp as Deeley and Tracy Lynn Middendorf as Kate.

Kahn chose this play because he felt that, according to production notes, "Pinter's work belongs in a theatre devoted to the classics because of his brilliant use of language. It is one of Harold Pinter's masterpieces. It's not well-known, but it's an extraordinary play that explores, in Pinteresque fashion, power in a relationship."

The Old Times design team includes scenic designer Walt Spangler, lighting designer Scott Zielinski, costume designer Jane Greenwood and sound designer Martin Desjardins.
