A brand new stage production based on the classic comedy is set to embark on a UK tour later this year.
Based on the tv series created by John Esmonde and Bob Larbey, this new stage adaptation by Jeremy Sams is set to star Rufus Hound as Tom Good. Further casting is yet to be announced.
The Good Life is set to open at the Theatre Royal Bath on 7th October 2021, before dates at Cheltenham Everyman, Salford Lowry, Oxford Playhouse, Cambridge Arts Theatre, Malvern Theatres, Richmond Theatre and Chichester Festival Theatre.
Remember the Goods – Tom and Barbara, suburban eco-warriors? And their next-door neighbours Margo and Jerry Leadbetter, desperately trying to maintain the Surbiton status quo? Jeremy Sams’s comedy leads the well-loved characters (not forgetting Geraldine the goat) through uproarious adventures, some old, some new and often (even today) hilariously familiar. This new play celebrates a time when, whatever our differences, we still managed to get on with our neighbours.
The tv sitcom ran from 1975 to 1978 starring Richard Briers, Felicity Kendal, Penelope Keith and Paul Eddington.
This new stage adaptation is set to be directed by Jeremy Sams with Set and Costume Design by Michael Taylor, Lighting Design by Mark Henderson, Sound Design by Fergus O’Hare and casting by Ginny Schiller CDG.
