The Times on Our Country’s Good

Our Country’s Good tells the extraordinary true story of a group of convicts and a young officer who rehearse and perform a play – Australia’s first theatrical production. With opposition from the officers and a leading lady who may be hanged, the odds are stacked against them.

Both a comedy and a powerful drama, Our Country’s Good shows us how we can escape the chains that bind us.

Our Country’s Good is a touring production made in co-production with Ramps on the Moon. The production features the creative use of audio description, signing, and captions. For more information visit rampsonthemoon.co.uk
