Important Update: Due to Coronavirus Covid-19, theatres are currently closed. Shows are now booking from 1st November 2020.

Olivier Award-winner Dominic Cooke (Follies) directs David Tennant in GOOD – a timely and prescient play that invites you to question what a “good” man is and does and where the bounds of responsibility lie.

Set in pre-war Germany, it shows how the average person might be seduced in to actions that we see as abhorrent.

Following his acclaimed performances in Don Juan in Soho, Much Ado About Nothing and Richard II, David Tennant returns to the West End for 10 weeks only in one of Britains most powerful political plays.

GOOD is booking from 6 October 2020 until 19 December 2020 at the Playhouse Theatre, London.

What’s the Story?

John Halder (David Tennant) is a good man. But John Halder must adapt to survive.

How is it possible to be a good person when things are falling apart?

As the world faces its Second World War, John Halder, a decent, intelligent, music-loving German professor, finds himself swept along in a movement that crescendos towards an unthinkable finale. Good is a warning for our times.

Who’s in it? Good Cast

David Tennant stars as John Halder. His long and distinguished career on stage, TV and film includes Doctor Who, recent TV hit Deadwater Fell, and Amazon comedy drama Good Omens.

The cast also features Fenella Woolgar (Hedda Gabler, Old Vic; Sister Hilda in Call the Midwife) as John Halder’s wife Helen and Elliot Levey (Snowflake, Kiln Theatre; Mary Stuart, Duke of York’s) as John Halder’s Jewish friend Maurice.

Further casting is to be announced.
