Directed by Sergi Belbel, the play ironizes on the devastating effects of the passing of time and the fragility of human and inter-marital relationships and can be seen up until the 11th of January
The Sala Beckett presents Harold Pinter’s Vells Temps (Old Times), directed by Sergi Belbel and starring Carlos Martínez, Miriam Alamany and Sílvia Bel. The play has been described as a minimalist triangle which, beneath its apparent superficiality, hides an ironic portrait of the devastating effects of the passing of time, the labyrinths of memory and the fragility of human and inter-marital relationships.
The protagonists of the play are a film director and his wife who are expecting the arrival of a friend they have not seen for twenty years and with whom they shared an apartment when they were far younger. The encounter, however, turns out not to be what any of them had expected and suspicion and mistrust soon rear their heads. From this point on, a battle ensues between the husband and the friend to see who can exercise the most control over his spouse.
Vells Temps can be seen in the Sala Beckett up until the 11th of January and tickets are priced at 20€ on the door or 13€ if purchased beforehand following this link. Performances will take place from Tuesday to Saturday at 9.30 pm and on Sundays at 6.30 pm. The theatre will close on the 24th and 31st of December.
