Our Country’s Good
In the 1780s, at the penal colony in New South Wales, Australia, Second Lieutenant Ralph Clark hopes to earn the Governor’s regard by having the convicts stage a play as a form of rehabilitation. The play chosen is George Farquhar’s restoration comedy The Recruiting Officer, but as it gets underway it soon becomes about far more than laughs and rehabilitation—it becomes about redemption for the colony as a whole. Written in 1988 by British playwright Timberlake Wertenbaker, this work is adapted from the Thomas Keneally novel The Playmaker.
