Our Country's Good

Overview

In a penal colony in 1798, a young lieutenant directs rehearsals of the Restoration comedy, 'The Recruiting Officer.' But with a cast dispirited convicts, opposition from sadistic officers, and a leading lady who faces being hanged, Australia's first theatrical production is in trouble from the start... Moving and at times irresistibly funny, 'Our Country's Good' is a rousing tribute to the transforming power of drama itself.
