About: Our Country's Good

We are thrilled to be working with the incredible Ramps on the Moon and Nottingham Playhouse to bring you Timberlake Wertenbaker's epic play Our Country's Good (based on The Playmaker by Thomas Keneally).

2018 marks 30 years since the premiere of Our Country's Good at the Royal Court, now recognised as a modern classic exploring themes of crime, punishment and rehabilitation.

Set in 1787, Our Country's Good tells the extraordinary true story of a group of convicts transported to Australia as a punishment for their crimes. Survival is by no means certain in this strange, unfamiliar world, yet an officer inspires them to rehearse and perform a play. Facing opposition, supply shortages, abuse and the threat of hangings, the odds are seemingly stacked against them.

Featuring creative use of audio description, captioning and British Sign Language interpretation, Timberlake Wertenbaker’s modern classic will open at Theatre Royal Stratford East on 25 April and runs until 5 May. Book early for the best prices!

Our Country’s Good is a touring production made in co‑production with the brilliant Ramps on the Moon and Nottingham Playhouse, whose previous collaborations over the last two years include the comedy hit The Government Inspector and a critically acclaimed version of The Who’s Tommy. The production features the creative use of audio description, captioning and British Sign Language interpretation.
