Good is a two-act play that dramatizes how John Halder, a seemingly progressive and “good” professor, whose best friend is the Jewish psychiatrist Maurice, is convinced to become a member of the Nazi party, and is also eventually able to rationalize all of the horrors of Nazi Germany, including the Final Solution (the official Third Reich policy to annihilate the worldwide Jewish population), which results in the deportation of his best friend.
