Rehearsals for the Drama Department’s upcoming production of ‘Our Country’s Good’ are well underway. All money raised from tickets sales will go towards the Lower Sixth Drama trip to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in August.
Set in 1787, “Our Country’s Good” tells the extraordinary true story of a group of convicts transported to Australia as a punishment for their crimes. Survival is by no means certain in this strange, unfamiliar world, yet an officer inspires them to rehearse and perform a play. Facing opposition, supply shortages, abuse, and the threat of hangings, the odds are seemingly stacked against them.
Performances will take place on the 23rd and 24th May in the Gallery, New Place. Tickets are £3 each and can be reserved in advance at
firstname.lastname@example.org and paid for on the day.
