Update On David Tennant’s Return To The Stage In ‘Good’

There's been an update on the status of David Tennant's postponed West End play, Good, thanks to one of the show's co-stars, Elliot Levey.

Good, which was postponed in both 2020 and 2021 due to the Coronavirus pandemic, will apparently be finally going into rehearsals.

Elliot talks about the play in a new interview with Jewish News who say:

Elliot plans to stay in Cabaret for the next six months, but will also start rehearsals with director Dominic Cooke for a reimagined production of CP Taylor’s Good with David Tennant and Fenella Woolgar. “It’s a sort of accompaniment to Cabaret as it’s set in Germany at the start of Nazism and revolves around a friendship between a Jewish psychoanalyst – my role – and an academic who is unconsciously drawn into the party. So it slowly descends into one running the camp and the other in a camp.”

First staged 20 years ago, Good is described as the definitive play about the Holocaust in English theatre and Elliot believes CP Taylor, a Glaswegian Jew, has written “the most brilliantly-conceived Jewish role I’ve ever read”. He adds: “It’s full of irony, self-hatred and that ‘don’t lump me in with all the other Jews – we’re not all the same’ attitude.”

No details have been given about when tickets will go back on sale online, but the Harold Pinter Theatre website says you can book at their box office.
