Radiohead’s Thom Yorke to compose music for OLD TIMES

Radiohead’s Thom Yorke is to score the music for Roundabout Theatre company’s production of OLD TIMES by Harold Pinter, starring Clive Owen, Eve Best and Kelly Reilly.

The play will be directed by Tony award winning actor, Douglas Hodge. Although no stranger to Pinter’s work – for ten years Douglas worked almost exclusively with Harold Pinter both as an actor and director – with this production of OLD TIMES Douglas makes his broadway debut as a director.

Of Thom’s work, Douglas said – “The music Thom has written for Old Times gives an immediacy and a ‘now-ness’ to the show. The play itself is about memory and love – Thom’s music works backwards and forwards and plays with time and repetition in the same way Pinter does. In true Thom Yorke style, the music is epic, heartbreaking, irresistible and complex. I’m hopeful this collaboration will result in a new kind of theatregoer coming to our show.”
