Good Life stage revivial confirmed

With Katherine Parkinson

The stage version of The Good Life, starring the IT Crowd’s Katherine Parkinson as Barbara, has been confirmed.

Earlier in the month Chortle reported how playwright Jeremy Sams penned a new script based on the work of series creators John Esmonde and Bob Larbey.

Now it has been confirmed that the show will run at Theatre Royal Bath from June 4 to 20  ahead of a hoped-for West End run.

However the rest of the cast has not yet been revealed.

The show is being staged by  Fiery Angel, which has previously put on hits such as Phoebe Waller-Bridge’s Fleabag, the West End versions of Touching The Void and Hairspray, and Rob Brydon's Songs and Stories tour as well as Home, I'm Darling with Parkinson starring as a woman striving to be the perfect 1950s housewife.

The Good Life was previously performed as stage show in 2012 – in the Lass O'Gowrie, a tiny pub theatre in Manchester.   That was the first time the sitcom, which also starred Richard Briers, Paul Eddington and Penelope Keith, had been adapted for a live show after Larbey, who died in 2014, gave his blessing
