Good Things

11 November 2022–19 November 2022

Company of Ten



Approaching fifty, Susan finds herself newly divorced, unexpectedly redundant, and living in her childhood home, looking after her elderly father and teenage daughter. In the charity shop where she volunteers, Susan meets David, an attractive widower, who donates some of his late wife’s belongings, including a fabulous pair of red shoes. This touching romantic comedy examines the stresses of modern life, the perils of internet dating, and the value of love, family and friendship.

The Times called the play ‘delightful… as funny, as touching, and yet as emotionally true as anything this supremely humane writer has yet produced’. To the Herald it was ‘a pan-generational smash hit in the making’ whilst The Scotsman effused over its ‘terrific theatrical energy and skill’.
