David Tennant’s New Play ‘Good’ Begins Previews In The West End Tonight

David Tennant’s new play ‘Good’ begins previews this evening prior to an official opening on 12th October at London's Harold Pinter Theatre.

Dominick Cooke directs the revival of C.P. Taylor’s play, which will continue until Christmas Eve. The cast features David as Halder, Olivier winner Elliot Levey as Maurice, and Sharon Small as Helen. 

In the drama, the world is facing a World War, and John Halder, a music-loving German professor, finds himself swept along in a movement that crescendos towards an unthinkable finale.

David was last seen in the West End in 2017 in Don Juan in Soho. Other stage work includes Richard II and Hamlet for the RSC, Much Ado About Nothing in the West End, and Lobby Hero at the Donmar Warehouse.

During his 30-year career, the late Taylor wrote more than 70 plays for theatre and TV. His other plays include SchippelThe Plumber, And a Nightingale Sang, Bread and Butter, Walter, Black and White Minstrels, Allergy, Bandits, and Bring Me Sunshine.

Good was first produced by the RSC in 1981, playing the Donmar Warehouse, Aldwych Theatre, and subsequently Broadway. A film, featuring Viggo Mortensen, Jodie Whittaker, and Jason Isaacs, was released in 2008. 

The production also has designs by Vicki Mortimer, lighting design by Zoe Spurr, sound design by Tom Gibbons, hair, wigs, and make-up by Campbell young, musical arrangements and composition by Will Stuart, movement direction by Imogen Knight, and casting by Amy Ball.
