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? As the world faces a World War, John Halder, a decent, intelligent, music-loving German professor, finds himself swept along in a movement that crescendos towards an unthinkable finale.
Talking about the news, David Tennant said: “Dominic is one of the UK’s all-time great theatre directors. 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”.
Meanwhile Dominic Cooke commented: “David Tennant is one of our finest actors and has the ideal combination of wit, warmth and charisma to bring John Halder vividly to life. I’m delighted that he has stuck with the show after such a long delayand am looking forward to finally starting work with him and the talented Elliot Levey on this remarkable play. C.P. Taylor’s modern classic, about the perils of denial, is an apposite fable for our troubled times and a great fit for Fictionhouse’s first West End production”.
