Clive Owen to make Broadway debut in Harold Pinter play

'Old Times'

Clive Owen brings his on-screen and London West End experience to Broadway for the first time, in a new production of the Harold Pinter play 'Old Times.'

Clive Owen will make his Broadway debut in September in the Roundhouse Theatre company’s production of Old Times, written by Harold Pinter, with Douglas Hodge directing. 

The play is described as an: “Unsettling drama of desire and blurred realities.” It follows the story of a married couple as they welcome an old friend for a visit, which triggers old memories, verbal games and classic Pinter amounts of menace. Pinter is one of the most influential modern British playwrights who even had a new style of theatre named after him as ‘Pinteresque.’

Whilst Owen is best known for his roles in Hollywood films such as Children of Men, Derailed and The International, he is no stranger to the theatre. He has performed on some the UK’s most prestigious stages such as The Royal National Theatre, in the original stage production of Closer, which was then adapted for the big screen and also starred Owen, he also starred as Romeo in the Young Vic’s production of Romeo and Juliette.

The production is set to open on September 17 and Owen’s co-stars are yet to be announced.
