THE PLAY / OLD TIMES
Saturday 15 July 1995
Everyone has woken up to the strengths of the play thanks to Lindy Davies's production. "The way that Old Times hovers between eroticism and power play is deeply dreamlike" (Financial Times). "Pinter is surely the funniest comic revue writer Britain never had," the Daily Telegraph remarked. The Times adored it, especially Harriet Walter who delivers "love, loss, pain and a deep,deep grief".
Wyndham's Theatre, Charing Cross Rd, London WC2 (0171-369 1736)
Don't be put off by the Christie hype; she's good, but the production is really good. And, being a Pinter, it's short and so summer-friendly.
