The Crescent Theatre Company presents
Our Country's Good
by Timberlake Wertenbaker. Based on the novel The Playmaker by Thomas Keneally
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?
