Our Country’s Good is set in the first penal colony in Australia and follows the extraordinary and sometimes hilarious story of their production of a restoration comedy with a cast of convicts.  Their success, achieved despite the brutality and many conflicts of convict and colony life, is heart-warming. Anyone interested in auditioning for a part, or wanting to help backstage, is very welcome.  For more information please contact the Director, Tony Clark, 07887744820 or email
