CP Taylor's Good to star David Tennant
CP Taylor's wartime play about how "good" people succumbed to the evils of Nazism is coming to the Playhouse Theatre in October this year. It will be directed by Dominic Cooke and stars David Tennant as liberal German literary professor John Halder, in what will be his first West End appearance since Don Juan in Soho at Wyndham's Theatre in 2017.
Originally commissioned by the Royal Shakespeare Company, the play premiered at the Donmar Warehouse in 1981, going on to Aldwych Theatre and subsequently Broadway.
Tennant describes how it "shows how people can blur reality, turn away from difficult moments and allow themselves to become inveigled into hideous situations. We are in danger of that happening now, not just politically but in terms of the environment… It is a play really about denial.’
Good runs from 6th October - 19th December 2020. Book tickets here
