Our Country's Good 

by Timberlake Wertenbaker

This gritty comedy-drama follows the first marines and convicts in Australia as they attempt to establish a civilisation. When they find themselves staging a Restoration Comedy, they struggle to maintain the accepted power dynamics between the officers and the prisoners. Chatsworth Players' production, directed by Maggie Ford, will be a gripping and thought-provoking evening, examining punishment, redemption, and theatre's power as a transformative and humanising force.

 

Our Country's Good is covered in accolades, including the 1988 Laurence Olivier award for Play of the Year, a 1991 Tony Nomination for Best Play, and a 1991 New York Drama Critics' Circle Award for Best Foreign Play. Tickets go on sale in July.

November 15, 16, 17 Medway Centre, Bakewell
