Garden Suburb Theatre presents Our Country’s Good, the dramatic true story of the first penal colony in Australia.
The play tells of hardship and colonialism, told from the contrasting perspectives of guards and convicts so far from home. Lieutenant Ralph Clark decides to put on a play to impress his superiors using convicts as actors. Seemingly doomed from the beginning, it eventually develops into something much more than was expected. It’s a touching and sometimes laugh-out-loud funny story, telling a universal tale of how prejudice, luck and circumstance can change the course of lives, and ultimately how little control each individual has.
Performing at Little Wood, Addison Way, NW11 6QS on dates between 4-20 July.
