"You make a deal with yourself one minute, you totally repudiate it the next."

“David Tennant returns to the West End is this topical play set in the 1930s. Director Dominic Cooke, former artistic director of the Royal Court, said “It is very current. It shows how people can blur reality, turn away from difficult moments and allow themselves to become inveigled into hideous situations.””


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 its Second World War, John Halder, a decent, intelligent, music-loving German professor, finds himself swept along in a movement that crescendos towards an unthinkable finale. Good is a warning for our times.

Olivier Award-winning director Dominic Cooke reimagines one of Britain’s most powerful, political plays with David Tennant returning to the West End from 21st April 2021 for 12 weeks only.
