More about Our Country’s Good

“Spewed from our country, forgotten, bound to the dark edge of the earth…”

A ship, sailing 15,000 miles to Australia, is crammed with Britain’s convicts – a punishment for their crimes. Thomas Barrett, aged 17 is transported seven years for stealing a sheep, James Freeman, aged 25, has double that for an assault on a sailor, whereas Dorothy Handland, aged 82, is castaway for stealing a biscuit.

After a life-threatening voyage they arrive in 1788. But keeping the colony disciplined is a brutal job, and cruelty is rife. To keep the convicts in line and attempt to ‘civilise’ the desperate, violent, and poverty-stricken group, Ralph Clark, a young ambitious lieutenant, decides they should perform a play.
