C. P. Taylor's play runs at the Harold Pinter Theatre.
David Tennant returns to the West End to star in Good at the Harold Pinter Theatre. Good tickets are available on London Theatre soon.
Tennant plays the lead role of John Halder in the play, a literary professor living in Frankfurt in the 1930s. The Good play demonstrates how seemingly decent people could have their lives and motives drastically altered by Nazi ideology during their regime in the Second World War. The Olivier-winning actor, Elliot Levey, will also star in Good as Maurice, John Halder's friend.
Good was first commissioned by the Royal Shakespeare Company in 1981, and premiered at the Donmar Warehouse directed by Howard Davies. Michael Grandage later directed the play, which has been hailed one of the most significant plays of the 20th century by the National Theatre, at the Donmar in 1999, starring Charles Dance.
Dominic Cooke directs Good in London. Cooke was the artistic director of the Royal Court from 2006 to 2013, and in that time staged a number of acclaimed productions such as Clybourne Park, Jerusalem, and Enron, each of which transferred to the West End. He has won a number of Olivier Awards for productions such as The Crucible with the RSC and Ma Rainey's Black Bottom at the National Theatre. He won Best Revival for Follies at the National Theatre.
