News: Production images released for The Good Life UK tour

Production images have been released of The Good Life UK tour, starring Rufus Hound, Preeya Kalidas, Dominic Rowan and Sally Tatum.

The show marks the world premiere stage production of the iconic British comedy.

Written by by Jeremy Sams, The Good Life is based on the classic television series by John Esmonde and Bob Larbey which entertained countless millions in the 1970s. Directed by Sams, this world premiere production will be the first time that the iconic characters of suburban neighbours the Goods and the Leadbetters will be seen on stage.

Tour venues include Theatre Royal Bath, Cheltenham Everyman, Salford Lowry, Oxford Playhouse, Cambridge Arts Theatre, Malvern Theatres, Richmond Theatre and Chichester Festival Theatre.

Remember the Goods – Tom and Barbara, suburban eco-warriors? And their next-door neighbours Margo and Jerry Leadbetter, desperately trying to maintain the Surbiton status quo? Jeremy Sams’s comedy leads the well-loved characters through uproarious  adventures, some old, some new and often (even today) hilariously familiar. This new play celebrates a time when, whatever our differences, we still managed to get on with our neighbours.

Set and costume design is by Michael Taylor, with lighting design by Mark Henderson, sound design by Fergus O’Hare, compositions by Tim Sutton and casting by Ginny Schiller CDG.
