Adapted from Thomas Keneally’s novel The Playmaker, Wertenbaker introduces the audience to an 18th century Australian penal colony. Amid the brutal conditions of the settlement, a Royal Marine lieutenant works with the convicts to present a comedic stage play. Featured in the 2013/2014 Theatre & Dance Subscription Series, tickets for Our Country’s Good are available beginning August 7 starting at $15.
