Our Country’s Good
Australia. 1788. A boatload of disease and disdain spews onto a foreign shore. As the soldiers struggle to impose order on the outcasts of the old society, a benevolent governor seizes on the notion of a play. In the shadow of the gallows and the gum tree the convicts gather and rehearsals begin for The Recruiting Officer. Based on real events Timberlake Wertenbaker’s award winning modern classic is an inspiring tale of the transforming power of theatre. Original Theatre company return with their latest production in a major touring revival, following on from the success of their recent productions of Brian Friel’s Dancing at Lughnasa, Alan Bennett’s Madness of George III and R.C.Sherriff’s Journey’s End.
