A Full-Cast Audio Play
My NYC-based theatre company is producing the (Olivier-award-winning, Tony nominated) play, "Our Country's Good" [tickets]. The play tells the true story of the first penal colony in Australia: In the late 18th Century, the convicts acted in a play called "The Recruiting Officer" -- Australia's first play. Thomas ("Schindler's List") Keneally wrote "The Playmaker," a novel about the convicts and their show. In 1988, playwright Timberlake Wertenbaker wrote a play based on Keneally's novel. She called her play "Our Country's Good." My company is reviving it. In addition, we've produced "The Recruiting Officer" as an audio play, and we've made it available for free download.
