Our Country’s Good Competition


Our Country’s Good by Timberlake Wertenbaker, based on The Playmaker by Thomas Keneally.

Observed by a lone, mystified Aboriginal Australian, the first convict ship arrives in Botany Bay, 1788, crammed with England’s outcasts. Ahead lies the brutal reality of colony life in this vast and alien land.

A profoundly humane piece of theatre, steeped in suffering yet charged with hope, Timberlake Wertenbaker’s Our Country’s Good (based on a true story) celebrates the redemptive power of art.

Cerys Matthews makes her debut as a composer for the stage writing the music for Our Country’s Good.

Contains strong language, violence and scenes of an adult nature.

Our Country’s Good runs at the National Theatre from 19 August – 17 October. For more information and to book tickets visit nationaltheatre.org.uk.
