As a consequence of ongoing Coronavirus restrictions, the upcoming West End revival of Good at the Harold Pinter Theatre has been postponed again. New Good performance dates will be announced, but David Tennant will still star in the production.

Good was due to play at the Harold Pinter Theatre from 21 Apr. - 17 July 2021. This latest postponement marks the second time Good has been moved, as it was originally scheduled for a winter 2020 run at the Playhouse Theatre.

David Tennant will still play John Halder in Good, a literary professor who is swept up in Nazi ideals in Germany. Fenella Woolgar and Elliot Levey will also appear, with further casting to be announced.

Good will be directed by Dominic Cooke, whose previous works include Follies and Ma Rainey's Black Bottom at the National Theatre. He'll also direct the West End revival of Hello, Dolly! at the Adelphi Theatre, which is currently slated for 2022.

C.P. Taylor's Good premiered at the Donmar Warehouse in 1981, starring Charles Dance. A film version of the play was also produced in 2008, starring Viggo Mortensen, Jason Isaacs, Jodie Whittaker and Mark Strong.
