The previously postponed West End revival of C. P. Taylor's 1981 play GOOD has set dates for its autumn run at the Harold Pinter Theatre. Previews will begin October 6, and the limited run will open October 12, with performances through December 24.
Olivier Award-winning director Dominic Cooke will re-imagine the WWII-set drama about a German professor who must rationalize his decision to join the Nazi party. Co-starring in the show will be David Tennant, who returns to the production, and Elliot Levey with further cast to be announced.
"Dominic is one of the U.K.’s all-time great theatre directors," sad Tennant in a statement. "I am really inspired and delighted to finally, 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."
GOOD will be the West End debut for Fictionhouse, an independent producing company launched by Cooke and Kate Horton. Vicki Mortimer will design.
"GOOD encompasses all we hope for with our work at Fictionhouse—brilliant and absorbing writing that illuminates our world, made by our greatest actors, directors, and designers," said Horton in a statement.
Previous ticket holders for GOOD will be prioritized for re-booking; tickets will be made available to the general public June 8.
