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. GOOD is awarning for our times.

Speaking about making his West End return in GOOD, 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’.
