Our Country’s Good

The first Governor of a wild new penal colony in Australia believed in the transformative power of theatre. Arguing the merits of allowing criminals to perform a play, Captain Arthur Phillip says, “The theatre is an expression of civilization…for a few hours we will no longer be despised prisoners and hated gaolers. We will laugh, we may be moved, we may even think a little. Can you think of something else that will provide such an evening?”

The Olivier and Tony Award winning play, Our Country’s Good tells the moving, sometimes painful, and often funny story of the dedication and passion a group of convicts in one of the remotest corners of their known world, poured into the production of a play that changed their lives.
