Good description

Good – Starring David Tennant

You think David Tennant is a bit of a genius? So do we, and we're so looking forward to seeing him in this fabulous West End production of C P Taylor's 1982 play, Good. If you love a great West End revival, this one's for you. And if you're keen to mark the launch of a brand new company from the awesome Dominic Cooke and Kate Horton – Fictionhouse - it's perfect.

What's the plot?

Meet John Halder. He is a good man. But he's going to have to adapt to survive, and adapt fast as the Second World War approaches. How will it be possible to remain a good person when things are falling apart? John Halder is a decent, intelligent, music-loving German professor, and he soon finds himself swept along towards a truly awful end. Is he still a good man? What does it even mean to be good? Good, as you can imagine, is a warning for our times, and right now it is more valid than ever.

Who stars in Good?

As well as David Tennant, Good features Fenella Woolgar and Elliot Levey. It's beautifully directed by Dominic Cooke and the design comes from Vicki Mortimer.

The inside story

Good is the first production by Fictionhouse, a new producing partnership between Dominic Cooke and Kate Horton, known for a very long and positive working relationship. Their celebrated partnership at the Royal Court theatre gave the world an astonishing 100 plus new plays, including world premieres of Jerusalem, Constellations, Posh, and the UK premier of Clybourne Park. Every one of them transferred to the West End.

In total the pair has been nominated for 210 major awards, winning 59 of them. And thanks to them we've seen some remarkable new playwrights thrive and grow: Mike Bartlett, Polly Stenham, Bola Agbaje, Nick Payne, Lucy Kirkwood, Tarell Alvin McCraney and more.

Who is this show for?

Being about the lead-up to WW2, politics, the rise of the Nazi party and the Holocaust, this play is probably best for people aged 14 and over.
