“There are things I remember which may never have happened, but as I recall them so they take place.” – Anna
The human perception of memory, of where reality ends and fantasy begins, is explored in one of Nobel Laureate Harold Pinter’s most famous plays.
“This HIT production of ‘Old Times’ must rank as one of the sexiest ever adaptations of renowned playwright Harold Pinter’s work….Its unlimited angles gave the audience the sense they were really look into someone’s living room as a voyeur…HIT has once again succeeded in masterfully presenting an absorbing re-interpretation of Pinter’s work.”
(CPH Post 5 stars January 31st, 2020 | by Roselyne Min)
“Det engelske sprog er som skabt til Pinters dramatik. Det er en fornøjelse at høre det spillet på engelsk…. Gå på opdagelse i det pinterske univers, og start for eksempel med ”Old Times” i Krudttønden. Det er en stor, livgivende og intens dødelig oplevelse.”

“Det er sproglig elegance….Old Times er fulde fire stjerner værd.”
(POV. International 4 stars January 30, 2020 | by Steen Blendstrup )
In this unsettling drama, married couple Kate and Deeley receive a visitor from Kate’s past and what begins as a playful game of light reminiscing over the exciting days of their youth, twists and turns as the recollections differ.
What are the consequences when love and lust turn to brutal jealousy? Who actually had sex with whom, or who will?
As this triangle battles to make the truth of the narrative theirs, who will ultimately win?
A steamy re-interpretation of a classic love triangle, with an exciting international cast:
