Showing from Thu 4 — Sat 20 Jun

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 theatre reimagining of the TV sitcom that delighted countless millions in the 1970s.

Jeremy Sams’ play leads the well-loved characters through various adventures, some old, some new, all hilarious and often (even today) worryingly familiar…

This new play celebrates a time when, whatever our differences, we still managed to get on with our neighbours.

Katherine Parkinson stars as Barbara. Best known for her roles in The IT Crowd, for which she received a British Comedy Best TV Actress Award and a BAFTA Television Award; Humans, and Doc Martin, she returns to Bath following last year’s hugely acclaimed performances in Home, I’m Darling and Uncle Vanya.

Jeremy Sams’ directing credits include the National Theatre’s 2000 West End and Broadway revival of Noises Off, the West End musical Spend, Spend, Spend and the international tour of The Sound of Music.
