David Tennant will return to the stage when he stars in a revival of CP Taylor's play Good at the Harold Pinter Theatre in London. The theatre is located in Panton Street, London SW1Y 4DN.

The run was originally scheduled to be a 10 week run from Tuesday 6th October 2020 to Saturday 19th December 2020. However, due to the pandemic, in September it was announced that the run had been postponed to Wednesday 21st April 2021 until Saturday 17th July and it would run for 12 weeks instead of the original 10. But in February 2021 it was announced that the play had been postponed again.

In May 2022 it was announced that the run was rescheduled for Thursday 6th October 2022 until Saturday 24th December. The run will last 11 weeks and will be at the Harold Pinter Theatre.

Current ticket holders have been given priority access to the new dates before they are made available to the public. Point of purchase companies are in touch with existing ticket holders and additional seats will be made available from Wednesday 8th June.

Good is an award-winning play which is in two acts written by British playwright Cecil Philip Taylor. It was originally commissioned by The Royal Shakespeare Company in 1981 and has been described as the definitive piece written about the Holocaust in the English-speaking theatre.

It is set in pre-war Germany and it shows how John Halder, a liberal-minded professor whose best friend is the Jewish Maurice, could not only be seduced into joining the Nazism but step-by-rationalised-step end up embracing the final solution justifying to his conscience the terrible actions. Alan Howard played the main role of John Halder while Sir Charles Dance was the star of a Donmar Warehouse revival in 1999.

Good is a production from a new company called Fictionhouse which was set up by Dominic Cooke who is a former artistic director of the Royal Court and its former executive director Kate Horton. David Tennant said Cooke was one of the UK's all-time great theatre directors and Good was 'a fantastic bit of writing that is more pertinent and resonant now than it ever has been.'

David Tennant will play John Halder. The cast will also include Elliot Levey and Sharon Small. It will be directed by Dominic Cooke.

Currently there are no plans to film Good during the run.
