Description

The Department of Theatre and Dance presents a production of Our Country's Good by Timberlake Wertenbaker, directed by Amy Seham.

In 1787, in the first Australian penal colony, a ragged, half-starved group of convicts put on a performance of The Recruiting Officer, an elegant comedy of manners by George Farquhar. Inspired by this strange-but-true moment of theatre history, playwright Wertenbaker has created a compelling contemporary work. With great humanity and humor, Our Country's Good uses the many levels of this play within a play to explore class, race, sexuality, and the effects of incarceration on prisoners and on those who imprison them. In response to its award-winning London premiere, critic Georgina Brown wrote, "Rarely has the redemptive, transcendental power of theatre been argued with such eloquence and passion."
