Description

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

In 1787, ships each with over 700 convicts on board set sail on an eight month voyage. When they arrive in Australia, their survival is by no means certain: supplies are running out, the convicts are stealing food or trying to escape and the guards are threatening mutiny.

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.

Our Country's Good is a touring production made in co-production with Ramps on the Moon, whose previous collaborations 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. For more information visit www.rampsonthemoon.co.uk.
