Our Country's Good

 A B O U T


In a penal colony in 1789, a young lieutenant directs rehearsals of the Restoration comedy, The Recruiting Officer. But with a cast of dispirited convicts, opposition from sadistic officers, and a leading lady who faces being hanged, Australia's first theatrical production is in trouble from the start ...

Now recognised as a modern classic, the play premiered at the Royal Court Theatre and has been performed all over the world. It was awarded the Evening Standard and Olivier Awards for Best New Play in 1989.

Please Note: This production contains strong language and scenes of a sexual nature
