"The most intense expression of compressed violence to be found anywhere in Pinter's plays". (The Times Old Times). "A rare quality of high tension is evident, revealing in Old Times a beautifully controlled and expressive formality that has seldom been achieved since the plays of Racine". (Financial Times). "Harold Pinter's poetic, Proustian Old Times has the inscrutability of a mysterious picture, and the tension of a good thriller". (Independent No Man's Land). "The work of our best living playwright in its command of the language and its power to erect a coherent structure in a twilight zone of confusion and dismay". (The Times).
