Rachel Watson longs for a different life. Her only escape is the perfect couple she watches through the train window every day, happy and in love. Or so it appears.

THE GOOD LIFE
Adapted by Jeremy Sams, based on the TV Series by John Esmonde & Bob Larbey
26 October – 4 November 2023
Forty is the excuse for many a midlife crisis drama, but none has proved as funny or as enduringly loveable as that of Tom Good who gives up his highly pressurised job to live off the land. Unfortunately for his upwardly mobile neighbours, Tom and his wife Barbara live in a semi in Surbiton so digging up their garden to grow their own fruit and veg and keep livestock is not seen as a desirable decision by Margo and Jerry Leadbetter.
Jeremy Sams' stage play, based on the hugely popular sitcom by John Esmonde and Bob Larbey, 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.
