The Good Life

The Good Life

Tue 19th - Sat 23rd Oct

Presented by Fiery Angel

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 starring award winning actor, presenter and comedian Rufus Hound as Tom; West End, television and film star Preeya Kalidas as Margo; Dominic Rowan (The Crown, Law & Order) as Jerry and Sally Tatum (Present Laughter, Miss Austen Regrets) as Barbara. 

Jeremy Sams’s comedy leads the well-loved characters (not forgetting Geraldine the goat) 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.

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

For more than thirty years, John Esmonde and Bob Larbey’s writing partnership was responsible for creating some of British sitcom’s greatest classics including Ever Decreasing Circles, Please Sir!, Brush Strokes and Mulberry.

Producer Fiery Angel’s numerous West End productions include Touching The Void; Hairspray; Home, I’m Darling; Long Day’s Journey Into Night; The Ladykillers; Ghost Storiesand Mary Stuart. The company’s production of The 39 Steps has been presented worldwide, winning Olivier, Tony and Molière Awards.
