Sharon Small has joined the cast of Fictionhouse and Playful Productions' Good, which will begin previews October 6 prior to an official opening October 12 at London's Harold Pinter Theatre.
Dominick Cooke will direct the revival of C.P. Taylor’s play, which will continue through December 24. Small will play Helen opposite the previously announced David Tennant as Halder and Olivier winner Elliot Levey (Cabaret) as Maurice.
Small is best known for her long-running role as Detective Sergeant Barbara Havers in the BBC adaptation of The Inspector Lynley Mysteries.
In the drama, the world is facing a World War, and John Halder, a music-loving German professor, finds himself swept along in a movement that crescendos towards an unthinkable finale.
Critics Circle Award winner Tennant was last seen in the West End in 2017 in Don Juan in Soho. Other stage work includes Richard II and Hamlet for the RSC, Much Ado About Nothing in the West End, and Lobby Hero at the Donmar Warehouse.
During his 30-year career, the late Taylor wrote more than 70 plays for theatre and TV. His other plays include Schippel, The Plumber, And a Nightingale Sang, Bread and Butter, Walter, Black and White Minstrels, Allergy, Bandits, and Bring Me Sunshine.
Good was first produced by the RSC in 1981,
playing the Donmar Warehouse, Aldwych Theatre, and subsequently Broadway. A film, featuring
Viggo Mortensen, Jodie Whittaker, and Jason Isaacs, was released in 2008.
The upcoming production will also have designs by Vicki Mortimer.
