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?

Well, they’re back – and on stage for the first time in The Good Life, a theatrical reimagining of the TV sitcom that delighted millions, starring award-winning actor, presenter and comedian Rufus Hound as Tom and West End, television and film star Preeya Kalidas as Margo.

Jeremy Sams’ comedy leads the well-loved characters through uproarious adventures; some old, some new and often hilariously familiar. This new play celebrates a time when, whatever our differences, we still managed to get on with our neighbours. 

Rufus Hound’s extensive stage credits include the original West End production of Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, One Man, Two Guvnors and Everybody’s Talking About Jamie. Preeya Kalidas’ credits include Bend It Like Beckham, Bombay Dreams and EastEnders. Jeremy Sams’ directing credits include the National Theatre’s West End and Broadway revival of Noises Off, the West End musical Spend, Spend, Spend and the international tour of The Sound of Music and Oklahoma! at Chichester Festival Theatre.
