- According to theatre reviewer Rachel Halliburton, “Pinter has turned the game of reinventing the past into a psychological game of Russian roulette” (1). She is, of course, speaking of Harold Pinter’s 1971 Old Times. Throughout Old Times Pinter slowly develops the hazy story of a married couple, Deeley and Kate, and Kate’s odd friend Anna through strong pauses and incoherent stories of the past. These tales show that whether stories of the past are fact or fiction they can still be a powerful factor in how the story develops....   [tags: Literary Analysis ]
