GoodDavid Tennant, the well loved actor best known for playing Doctor Who, returns to the West End to star in Good, the first play from the newly formed Fictionhouse, a partnership between Olivier Award-winning director Dominic Cooke and Kate Horton who produced over 100 new plays at the Royal Court, including the world premieres of Jerusalem, Constellations and Posh. With this new production they reimagine one of Britain's most powerful, political plays by C. P. Taylor. Set just before the Second World War, Good centres on John Halder, a decent, intelligent, music-loving German professor who finds himself swept along in a movement that crescendos towards an unthinkable finale. David Tennant, who was last in the West End as Don Juan in Soho in 2017 returns, starring with Call the Midwife star Fenella Woolgar and Elliot Levey, best known for Da Vinci's Demons as well as performances at the National Theatre and Almeida.

 

About Playhouse Theatre

A short step away from the main strip of West End theatres, the Playhouse's stylish curved facade is rather lost among the towering architecture of Charing Cross and Embankment. If the exterior is a little too restrained however, the same cannot be said for the auditorium, which is a sumptuous tribute to theatrical excess. More about Playhouse Theatre
