Character study, Chilling, Absorbing, Ambitious, Clever

See it if David Tennant commands the stage throughout. A very good character study on how someone can go from good to evil.

Don't see it if The show is minimalist theatre, so if you prefer the spectacle of the west end, you won't find that here.

Great writing, Excellent lead, Powerful

See it if you enjoy well-written plays on banalities of evil. Mr. Tennant is terrific as a 1930s German intellectual rationalizing Nazi party ideology

Don't see it if you have a hard time following actors playing multiple roles, sometimes switching mid-sentence, or events that are presented out of sequence Read more

Thought-provoking, Resonant, Relevant, Great acting, Ambitious

See it if you want to witness a tour-de-force by the sublime Sharon Small, who seamlessly switches between the characters of mother, wife, and lover.

Don't see it if you hate plays with dark themes.

Great acting, Thought-provoking, Absorbing

See it if you want an engaging play depicting the ease with which one's morals can be twisted if you allow it. Fantastic from Tennant, as you'd expect

Don't see it if you're not prepared for what ends up being quite a philosophical evening at the theatre or you need a lush set to be engaged.

The London Evening Standard
October 13th, 2022

"Although grimly funny and studiously banal at times, it progresses inexorably...This is an important rather than an enjoyable watch."

The Guardian (UK)

" 'Good' is a gradually enraging drama that makes us hear afresh the denials that lead populism into dangerous waters, and may well be a lesson for our times."

The Telegraph (UK)
October 14th, 2022

"In a hypnotic performance, [Tennant] ... keeps us in suspense, giving conspiratorial flashes and darkening into malevolence, but, in the main, eerily neutral and preoccupied ... Less commendable are the Cabaret-style ticket-prices at the top end: £155 for the seat I was sitting in? It was good, but not that good."

"It's a chilling performance rather than a moving one...Good isn't perfect, but its lessons demand to be understood."

London Theatre

"It’s a strong framing, and there are striking, resonant messages within this work, but as drama it unsettles when really it should devastate."

"Don’t expect fireworks. What you get is something stranger, more insidious, and I suspect much more memorable."

The Stage (UK)

"...the play’s pertinence, in our age of populism, scapegoating and sloganeering, remains sharp. It’s a grim nightmare of quietly lethal potency."

Theatre Weekly (UK)
October 13th, 2022

"Tennant’s performance is terrifyingly magnificent; never missing a beat, Tennant keeps the audience enthralled, continually shocking us in the cool detachment with which he delivers some of the most chilling lines."
