By C. P. Taylor.

Cast: 6m., 4w. (plus an optional number of musicians.) "GOOD is a triumphant, wonderful and incandescent evening in the theatre," wrote critic Clive Barnes in the N.Y. Post, and Frank Rich in his N.Y. Times review called it, "A flawless display of theatre craft." Indeed, it's a play that invites the combining of all the theatre arts. The writing, the interplay of music and drama, the stark simplicity of the staging that takes the audience into the complexity of a mind that can deal with warm humanity and chilling horror almost within the same moment make this production both a challenge and an opportunity. Alan Howard, in the leading role, was voted Best Actor by the London drama critics. "History is a nightmare into which the antihero of GOOD sleepwalks," is how critic T.E. Kalem of Time magazine began his review. Set in Germany at the time when Hitler has just come into power, the play takes place partly inside the mind of a "good" man, Professor Halder. Unconsciously, this well-meaning scholar is led into participation in the hell that follows, as do the disturbing questions about..."good." As a critic summed up, "With a shattering climax, GOOD achieves a high pitch of luminous moral gravity." Bare stage w/ props.
