Sorry, this show is not currently booking.

The Good Life – the iconic TV sitcom that delighted countless millions in the 1970s – is back in an all new West End comedy. 

Starring Rufus Hound as Tom Good, this highly anticipated new play from Jeremy Sands features the much loved characters trying to live their best lives in old Surbiton. 

Join eco-warriors Barbara and Tom and Margot and Jerry Leadbetter and relive some old adventures, as well as new ones, all hilarious and often, even today, worryingly familiar.

The Good Life is rumoured to open in London’s West End in 2022.

What is The Good Life about?

Remember the Goods – Tom and Barbara, suburban eco-warriors?
