April play reading:
Our Country's Good
by Timberlake Wertenbaker.
Following on from some fabulous and varied playing readings so far in 2021, our April reading is ‘Our Country’s Good’.
Set in 1789, ships with hundreds of convicts and soldiers sailed for eight months to land in Australia. There was little in the way of supplies and resources, and mutiny was always on the horizon.
This play tells the true story of a group of convicts and young and ambitious lieutenant who rehearse and perform a play - which would turn out to be Australia’s first theatrical production. Opposed from the get-go by most of the officers, and with a leading lady facing possible death, it was never going to be easy...
First performed at the Royal Court in 1988, this is a timeless piece that tells us about the redemptive and transformative power of theatre.
There are plenty of parts with various age ranges so please do get in touch if you’d like to read – please send your request to be a reader to email@example.com by Monday 26th April.
We look forward to seeing you on Wednesday 28th April, please note we are returning to our regular start time of 20:00 this month.
Taking place on Zoom, 'doors open' 19:45,
the reading will begin at 20:00.
