Clive Owen makes a riveting Broadway debut in Harold Pinter's Old Times, playing a man whose cocky suavity slowly unravels as he negotiates his hold on two elusive women, who may be different sides of the same person. That's just one possible interpretation of this famously slippery 1971 three-hander about the mutable recesses of memory and the evanescent nature of erotic possession. But director Douglas Hodge doesn't make the mistake of imposing explanations where none were intended as he charts a transfixing course from gamesmanship to the consuming loss of a fantasy that was perhaps never attainable to begin with.

-----Hollywood Reporter
The beauty and power of the 70-minute piece lies in how the idea of recalling one’s past is a sort of betrayal, an act of violence against another. The weapons in this battle are memories—overlapping, contradicting, insinuating themselves into the present. Despite overdetermined design and asymmetrical performances, Pinter’s precise, lyrical language comes through with crystalized, cutting force. Nothing here feels old; the blood flows freshly from new wounds

Under the deft direction of Douglas Hodge, Old Times casts its spell from the moment we enter the theater and refuses to relent until we leave
