Deeley (Owen) is a man quite looking forward to meeting Anna, his wife Kate's friend from long ago. But as the night goes on, Anna's visit quickly shifts from an ordinary sharing of memories to a quiet battle for power."

The play is the opening production of he Roundabout Theatre Company's 50th Anniversary Season.

The creative team for Old Times will be announced at a later date.

Eve Best earned two Tony nominations for her previous stints on Broadway in 'The Homecoming' and 'Moon for the Misbegotten.'
