Our Country's GoodTimberlake Wertenbaker's Our Country's Good, an award-winning play first performed 25 years ago which celebrates the redemptive power of art, comes to the National Theatre under the direction of Nadia Fall. Set in Australia in 1788, the first convict ship arrives in Botany Bay crammed with England's outcasts. Three proposed public hangings incite an argument: how best to keep the criminals in line, the noose or a more civilised form of entertainment? Step forward ambitious Second Lieutenant Ralph Clark, a young married lieutenant who plans to put on the country's first play.
