"Perfect casting of the four main characters brings this much-loved, iconic situation comedy to life on the stage" - Break A Leg


When suburban couple Tom and Barbara Good decide to swap the pressures of the rat race for an alternative and more sustainable way of living, they set about turning their home into a model of self-sufficiency. They grow their own fruit and veg, keep livestock in the garden, make their own clothes, and even generate their own electricity from manure.

It's the good life for them – but not for their next-door neighbours Margo and Jerry Leadbetter who are desperately trying to maintain their snooty Surbiton status quo.

This theatrical reimagining brings this beloved 1970s TV sitcom to the stage for the first time, reuniting the well-loved characters and plunging them into hilarious scrapes and escapades!


Based on the TV series by John Esmonde and Bob Larbey. This amateur production of “The Good Life” is presented by arrangement with Nick Hern Books.
