About the Play
Premiering 25 years ago at the Royal Court followed by a successful run on Broadway, Timberlake Wertenbaker’s Our Country’s Good offers the true story of the early days of the founding of Australia.
Miles from their homeland, a boat full of Royal Marine officers and convicts arrives on the Australian shore in 1789, forced to create a community in a fledgling penal colony. Amid the brutal conditions of the settlement, a determined lieutenant volunteers to direct the convicts – a collection of murderers and thieves – in a comedic stage play. With no support from his fellow Marines and the leading lady’s imminent execution, it’s questionable if the show will go on.
