    ‘We left our country for our country’s good’

    Funny, poignant and thought-provoking, ‘Our Country’s Good’ is the true story of the first convicts transported to Australia: how, despite the dangers of hunger and disease and so-called justice, the criminals manage, with the help of Lieutenant Ralph Clark, to produce a play – showing the true universal power of theatre to connect, and to humanise.

    ‘Theatre is like a small republic, it requires private sacrifices for the good of the whole’
