Our Country's Good
By Timberlake Wertenbaker
Directed by Jeff Knupp
In June of 1789, a marine lieutenant decides to celebrate the King's birthday by putting on a play - the first ever produced in Australia. The cast consists of convicts saved from the gallows and jails of England, few of whom can read, much less act. The play is being produced against a background of food shortages and barbaric punishments which is brilliantly juxtaposed against the civilizing influence of theatrical endeavor. It is a true story.
