Greystone Theatre: Our Country's Good
March 19 - 29, 2014
Our Country's Good
by Timberlake Wertenbaker
Directed by Pamela Haig Bartley
1789: New South Wales, Australia. Second Lieutenant Ralph Clark is ambitious and wants to win favour with Governor Phillips. A play is proposed to celebrate the King’s birthday – but who would perform it? The transported criminals, of course. Based on historical fact, Our Country’s Good is a frequently funny, ultimately forceful statement on the transformative potential of theatre and the civilizing power of the arts.
