Time Out says
David Tennant returns to the stage in CP Taylor’s devastating drama about a decent man’s slide into Nazism
In a further sign that the UK theatre industry believes social distancing will be over by spring, new dates and a new theatre have been announced for ‘Good’, which was originally scheduled to run at the Playhouse Theatre in 2020. Original tickets are still valid and will be reallocated, with extra tickets going on public sale Oct 12.
David Tennant’s near-obsessive latter-day penchant for playing antiheroes continues with Dominic Cooke’s revival of Scots playwright CP Taylor’s great 1982 play ‘Good’. It charts the moral downfall of John Halder, a decent German professor with a Jewish best friend, Maurice, as he slowly internalises and accepts the ideology of the Third Reich. Tennant stars as Halder, alongside Fenella Woolgar and Elliot Levey, in the first stage outing for Fictionhouse, a new production company from Cooke and Kate Horton, who worked with him at the Royal Court. Design is from Vicki Mortimer.
