Our Country's Good
by Timberlake Wertenbaker
Based on the novel 'The Playmaker' by Thomas Keneally

Sydney, Australia 1788.

A young married lieutenant is directing rehearsals of the first play ever to be staged in Australia. With only two copies of the text, a cast of convicts, and one leading lady who is about to be hanged, conditions are hardly ideal.

Our Country's Good is one of Timberlake Wertenbaker's best-loved plays and won the Laurence Olivier Play of the Year Award in 1988.
