Hound tweeted: “The Good Life indeed.”

The original television series of The Good Life, which was created by John Esmonde and Bob Larbey, ran for four series on the BBC from 1975 to 1978.

It followed Tom Good and his wife Barbara, who converted their garden into a farm in a bid to become self-sufficient.

Richard Briers and Felicity Kendal played the lead roles in the programme.

The stage adaptation will see Kalidas and Rowan play the Good’s neighbours Margo and Jerry Leadbetter.
