For many years, British actor David Tennant has not only been gracing our big and small screens in hit shows like Doctor Who, Broadchurch and Good Omens, he has also always been an active member of the theater scene. After such iconic Shakespearean roles as Hamlet, Richard II or Benedick in Much Ado About Nothing, his most recent role was that of Don Juan in a West End production in 2017.
This year, David Tennant will return to the London stage in the play Good by Cecil Philip Taylor. Tennant will play the role of John Halder, a German professor in Frankfurt in the 1930s, who throughout the play will live and struggle through the tragedy of World War II. Originally published in 1982, the play portrays an important message even in today’s political climate, about extremists preying on the average citizen and the vilifying of certain minorities.
This West End production will be directed by Olivier Award-winning director Dominic Cooke and will only run for 10 weeks. It will open in October and you can purchase tickets starting today on this website!
