Year 3 Acting Graduation Play: OUR COUNTRY’S GOOD

  • Year 3 Acting Graduation Play: OUR COUNTRY’S GOOD

Unitec’s graduating acting students perform a play set in the 18th century.

A profoundly humane piece of theatre, steeped in suffering yet charged with hope, celebrating the redemptive power of art. Set in 1787, Our Country's Good by Timberlake Wertenbaker tells the extraordinary true story of a group of convicts transported to Australia as a punishment for their crimes. In the midst of trying to survive in an unfamiliar place, an officer inspires the convicts to rehearse and perform a play. The odds are seemingly stacked against the mostly illiterate cast played by Unitec’s graduating acting students under the direction of Shane Bosher.

Time: Friday, 11 Nov 2022 - Sunday, 13 Nov 2022
