Scott Thomas back to West End

Sewell also will star in Pinter's 'Old Times'

LONDON — Kristin Scott Thomas will return to the West End to headline a revival of Harold Pinter’s “Old Times” in January.

Produced by Sonia Friedman Prods., the 1971 drama also will star Rufus Sewell and Lia Williams in a staging to be helmed by Ian Rickson (“Jerusalem”).

“Old Times” centers on a couple visited by an old friend whose presence raises undercurrents of tension. Scott Thomas and Williams will alternate in the roles of the visitor and the female half of the couple.

The fifth Pinter play to be produced by Friedman, “Old Times” also marks her third collaboration with Scott Thomas and helmer Rickson. Their previous outings together have been “Betrayal” — another Pinter play for three actors — and Chekhov’s “The Seagull.” The latter won Scott Thomas an Oliver award and transferred to Gotham’s Walter Kerr Theater.

Hildegard Bechtler designs sets and costumes with lighting by Peter Mumford. Beginning previews at the Harold Pinter Theater Jan. 12, it plays a limited four-month engagement with a Jan. 31 opening.
