The production, set to star David Tennant, was set to start performance at the Playhouse Theatre this Autumn.

It was announced today that the forthcoming production of C.P Taylor’s play Good is delaying its opening in the West End to Spring 2021.

Having set to open at the Playhouse Theatre from the 6th October, it is the latest West End production to be affected by the ongoing pandemic. A new schedule of when the play will be performed will be announced soon.

Directed by Dominic Cooke, the production is set to star David Tennant as Professor John Halder and was last seen on stage in Don Juan in Soho in 2017.

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.

Good was first seen at the Donmar Warehouse in 1981 and follows a professor who tries to rationalise the actions and anti-semitism of the Nazi party. 

The creative team for the production includes designs by Vicki Mortimer, lighting by Paule Constable, sound design by Paul Arditti and musical direction by Nigel Lilley.
