Our Country's Good

May 9-12

Brunner Main Stage Theatre

Directed by Jeff Coussens

Set against the backdrop of Australia's penal colony in the late 18th century, this thought-provoking drama is a poignant examination of the redemptive power of theatre. As the struggling colony grapples with issues of justice and rehabilitation, a group of convicts and British officers embark on an audacious project: to stage a play that will not only entertain but also enlighten and lift their spirits. Amid the harsh realities of their existence, the production becomes a beacon of hope, revealing the shared humanity that transcends societal divisions.

Through the exploration of the relationships between captives and captors, Our Country's Good masterfully navigates themes of oppression, self-discovery, and the unifying force of art, underscoring the enduring truth that even in the harshest of circumstances, the spark of creativity can illuminate the path to redemption.
