The Crescent Theatre Company presents
Our Country's Good
14 - 17 Mar in the Studio
Timberlake Wertenbaker’s disturbing, yet profoundly humane, humorous and uplifting play, is set in Botany Bay, Australia, 1789. It deals with true events surrounding a young marine officer’s struggle to stage a play with a group of transported convicts - including a leading lady who may be about to be hanged!
Is brutality and degradation the only way? Or might the civilising nature of theatre be more effective than the noose?
