Sharon Small has joined David Tennant and Elliot Levey in the cast of Good, which opens at the Harold Pinter Theatre later this year.

Dominic Cooke's new production of C P Taylor's 1981 play will run for a strictly limited season from 6 October to 24 December 2022.

Set in 1930s Germany, it follows a professor who attempts to rationalise the actions and anti-semitism of the Nazi party. A revival of the play in 1999 starred Charles Dance and a film version – created in 2008 – featured Viggo Mortensen, Jason Isaacs and Jodie Whittaker.

Small reunites with fellow Scottish actor Tennant, having first appeared together in a short film 25 years ago. She is best known for her long-running role as Detective Sergeant Barbara Havers in the BBC adaptation of The Inspector Lynley Mysteries. Prior to Good, she will appear in The Trials at Donmar Warehouse.

Cooke said: "I am so excited to finally get Good into rehearsals and our patience has been rewarded with the thrilling combination of David Tennant, Elliot Levey, and Sharon Small together on stage. I can't wait for audiences to experience C P Taylor's remarkable and timely play with these three fantastic actors."
