Harold Pinter’s play Old Times will be performed in Bromley in June.

The play begins when Anna decides to pay a visit to her old friends - married couple Deeley and Kate - who live in a farmhouse near the seaside.

While at first it seems that she wants to reminisce about the time that they spent together in London 20 years ago, the friends soon begin to compete for recognition.

Their memories start to become conflicted and their recollections begin to overlap, creating confusion about what it was that actually happened all those years ago.

Old Times was originally staged by the Royal Shakespeare Company at London’s Aldwych Theatre in 1971.

It has been staged a number of times since, with the latest production taking place in 2013 at the Harold Pinter Theatre.

Mr Pinter’s career spanned more than 50 years, and he was renowned for being an influential British dramatist.

He was awarded the Nobel Prize in literature in 2005 and his well-known plays include The Birthday Party, Betrayal and The Dramatist.

Old Times will be running at the Bromley Little Theatre from June 16 to 19.

Performances will be taking place at 7.45pm.

Colleen Batson will be making her debut as a director at the theatre.
