Trinity University Theater- Presents OUR COUNTRY’S GOOD
OUR COUNTRY’S GOOD
By Timberlake Wertenbaker
Directed by Stacey Connelly
Costume Design by Stieren Guest Artist Virgil C. Johnson
Based on a true story, Our Country’s Good follows the First Fleet’s military officers and convicts as the first Western settlers in Australia. As part of the Governor’s plan for prisoner rehabilitation, the keen young Second Lieutenant Ralph Clark sets himself the challenge of directing the convicts in a play. From the start, the desperate-to-impress Lieutenant finds the production marred by obstacles: a quarreling cast, illiterate actors, disease, starvation, brutal senior officers-even the gallows. Day after day, the questions mount: Will Australia’s first settlement collapse into chaos? Do hardened criminals ever reform? Can art offer hope in a hopeless world?
OUR COUNTRY’S GOOD is for mature audiences; it contains strong language and adult situations.
