When Tom and Barbara Good decide to exchange the pressures of the rat race for an alternative, more sustainable way of living, they set about turning their suburban home in Surbiton 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 Margo and Jerry Leadbetter, who live next door, and are desperately trying to maintain the Surbiton status quo.
Jeremy Sams' stage play, based on the hugely popular sitcom by John Esmonde and Bob Larbey is directed for the Windsor Theatre Guild by Jen Mackay and reunites the well-loved characters (not forgetting Geraldine the goat) as they get themselves into and out of scrapes – some old, some new, all hilarious.
Tapping into issues that resonate now more than ever, The Good Life is a witty reimagining of a television classic, with a wellyful of laughs that's sure to delight.
PARENTAL WARNING: Although this play has no sexual content or explicit violence or language, it does have some comic inferences to animal death and cannabis. (Suggested age 10 +)
