Katherine Parkinson will assume the role of Felicity Kendal in The Good Life on stage | Stage

-

Katherine Parkinson will star in a new theatrical version of the 1970s comedy The Good Life in the role originated by Felicity Kendal.

Parkinson will play Barbara Good, who tries to achieve a sustainable existence at home in Surbiton with her husband, Tom (played on screen by Richard Briers). The couple gives their garden to pigs, chickens and a goat called Geraldine, to the frustration of their neighbors Margo and Jerry Leadbetter (Penelope Keith and Paul Eddington).

The play is adapted by Jeremy Sams from the television show of John Esmonde and Bob Larbey and promises to mix family stages of the program, which lasted four series from 1975 to 1978, as well as new material. Sams also directs the play, which has its world premiere at the Royal Bath Theater in June. The production, which should coincide with today’s growing quest for sustainability, says “celebrate a time when, regardless of our differences, we could still move on with our neighbors.”

Parkinson’s last role in the West End was in the work of Laura Wade Home, I am Darling as Judy, lover of vintage dresses, who lives as a housewife of the 50s in the 21st century.

The release of The Good Life has not yet been announced.
