Welcome to Good. Meet John Halder. He's a good man, a liberal-minded man who works as a professor and has a Jewish best friend. But when the political rumblings that preceded World War Two begin, Halder realises that being good isn't going to be easy. As time passes he is sucked farther into the Nazi nightmare but still manages to justify his actions to himself. As it turns out, a 'good' man can not only be seduced into evil ways, joining the Nazi party, he can even self-justify his involvement in the 'final solution'.
As the man who reimagined the story, Dominic Cooke said: “CP Taylor’s modern classic about the perils of moral compromise is an apposite fable for our troubled times and it feels like an exciting first project for Fictionhouse. Ever since we left the Royal Court, the incredible Kate Horton and I have been plotting about how we could find a way to work together again. Fictionhouse has been a long time coming and I couldn’t be happier.” Kate Horton, his long-time collaborator, is equally pleased with the play and delighted to be working with Cooke again. “Dominic, David, Fenella, Elliot and the entire Good creative team are the best people I could imagine coming together to realise C.P. Taylor’s extraordinary, vital play. Good encompasses all we hope for with our work at Fictionhouse - brilliant and absorbing writing that illuminates our world.” Don't miss this splendid piece of fiction, on stage for a limited 10 week run.
