Our Countrys Good 2019“Our Country’s Good” is a 1988 play written by British playwright, Timberlake Wertenbaker, adapted from the Thomas Keneally novel “The Playmaker”. It is a piece of epic theatre that probes the divide between authority and transgression. The story concerns a group of Royal Marines and convicts in a penal colony in New South Wales, Australia in the 1780s, who put on a production of George Farquhar’s city comedy “The Recruiting Officer”. The intent was to aid the rehabilitation of prisoners who would become free citizens after serving their term.
