David Tennant’s return to London’s West End in a revival of the play Good has been postponed.

Olivier Award-winning director Dominic Cooke reimagines one of Britain’s most powerful, political plays with David Tennant for a limited 12 week run.


Originally due to play at the Playhouse Theatre in the West End from October 6 of this year, performances were previous moved to April 21, 2021 at the Harold Pinter Theatre. Newly rescheduled dates are to be confirmed.

First premiering in 1981, Good is set in 1930s Germany amid the rise of anti-semitism of the Nazi party.

A synopsis of Cecil Philip Taylor’s work teases: “John Halder is a good man. But John Halder must adapt to survive.

“How is it possible to be a good person when things are falling apart?

“‘You make a deal with yourself one minute, you totally repudiate it the next.’ As the world faces its Second World War, John Halder, a decent, intelligent, music-loving German professor, finds himself swept along in a movement that crescendos towards an unthinkable finale. Good is a warning for our times.”

Tennant said: “Dominic is one of the UK’s all-time great theatre directors.

“I am really inspired and delighted to finally get a chance to work with him, and especially on a wonderful play like C P Taylor’s Good – a fantastic bit of writing that is more pertinent and resonant now than it has ever been.”
