Timberlake Wertenbaker’s adaptation of The Playmaker
, by Thomas Keneally, examines Australia’s first penal colony and the redemptive power of art. As the inmates rehearse for the upcoming production, light is shed on the class system of the colony, relationships between the incarcerated and the officers tasked with policing them, and the effect of art on a prison population. Nominee of six Tony Awards and winner of two Laurence Olivier Awards and a New York Drama Critic's Circle Award, Our Country's Good
was remounted in London this year to mark the 25th anniversary of its debut.
