Updated on 28 February 2020

World-renowned Doctor Who actor David Tennant is set to return to the West End stage to star in Good at the Playhouse Theatre in London, it has been confirmed.

The C.P. Taylor play is the latest production to be announced amidst Jamie Lloyd's star-studded season, which opened at the venue with a rejuvenated, rap-inspired staging of Cyrano de Bergerac starring James McAvoy last autumn. The season is also set to star Game of Thrones actress Emilia Clarke as Nina in The Seagull (11 March - 30 May 2020) and Interstellar's Jessica Chastain in her West End debut as Nora in A Doll's House (10 June - 5 September 2020).

Good The Play opens in London on 6 October 2020 for just 10 weeks until 19 December. Tickets for Good starring David Tennant go on sale at 12 noon tomorrow!

C.P. Taylor's Good starring David Tennant to run at the Playhouse Theatre!

It was rumoured back in 2018 that Scottish actor David Tennant (The Pillowman; 2003 at the National Theatre) would be starring in The Lover and The Collection as part of Jamie Lloyd's Pinter at the Pinter season. But then the critically acclaimed season came and went with no Tenth Doctor in sight, leaving his die-hard fans high and dry. Now the wait is finally over as the award-winning actor makes his West End return in Good after Jamie Lloyd's new season at The Playhouse concludes its run.

Good Playhouse Theatre cast and creatives

Last seen on the London stage in 2017's Don Juan in Soho at Wyndham's Theatre, David Tennant is set to take on the role of John Halder in C.P. Taylor's dark piece set in Frankfurt just before the Holocaust. Tennant will also be joined by cast members Elliot Levey and Fenella Woolgar. The Good play creative team features lighting design by Paule Constable, design by Vicki Mortimer, sound design by Paul Arditti, and musical direction by Nigel Lilley.

Further casting for Good along with the full creative team will be announced at a later date.

C.P. Taylor's Good play plot

Written by C.P. Taylor and commissioned by the Royal Shakespeare Company in 1981, Good takes place in 1930s Germany and explores how a seemingly good man can be lured into committing deplorable acts against humanity. As a political commentary on the Holocaust, the play remains just as relevant in today's world as Donald Trump's America continues in its downward spiral towards totalitarianism.

What makes a man a good person? That's precisely the question John Halder finds himself asking. But sometimes what 'good people' might think are logical decisions are actually what blurs the fine line between good and sinister evil.

C.P. Taylor's groundbreaking work is widely regarded as one of the greatest English-language plays about the Holocaust of all time and you won't want to miss the brand-new production!
