Our Country's Good: Period Drama Set in 18th-Century Australia
Our Country's Good is set amidst the starvation and brutality of 1780s Australia, when the country was a British penal colony filled with England's thieves, pickpockets, adulterers, prostitutes and other criminals. The officers' concerns about the unruliness of the colony's inhabitants leads them to stage a play, with the convicts as actors. As rehearsals proceed, the prisoners -- particularly the female ones -- seize hold of their roles in ways that threaten the patriarchal power structure. This unflinching examination of the violence at the heart of colonization invites the audience to share in the transformative power of theater.
