Our Country's Good archiveBased on a heart-warming true story, the play follows a group of 18th Century convicts and officers as they confront a savage new land. These jailbirds, male and female, have no rights and their treatment is as ferocious as the landscape. But one man defies the rules. Lt Ralph Clark creates the very first piece of theatre ever to be performed in Australia, The Recruiting Officer. The drama mounts as the convicts rehearse, and their hopes for a new life grow stronger. Incredibly the play will go on! Our Country's Good was first presented at the Royal Court Theatre, London on 10 September 1988. Note: The convicts use explicit language and this award-winning play contains scenes which some people might find shocking. Running time: 2hrs 30mins (inclu. 15min interval)
Performers Aden Gillett (Governor Philip/Wisehammer), Phillip Whitchurch (Harry Brewer/Arscott/Capt Campbell), Chris Harper (Ralphe Clarke), Emily Bowker (Mary/Reverend Johnson), Jack Lord (Capt Collins/Sideway), Rachel Donovan (Dabby/Lieutenant Faddy/Meg), Adam Best (Major Ross/Ketch), Seun Shote (Aborigine/Caeser/Johnston), Jenny Ogilvie (Duckling/Capt Tench), Emma Gregory (Liz Morden/Lieutenant Dawes).
