Spilling onto the shores of Australia, a boat full of outcast and unsavoury characters unite to discover the mighty power of the theatre. It is 1788, a page out of history's book reeked with crime and sexual inequality, as well as a society facing the dizzying heat of a strange new land. A governor decides that a play will calm the chaos, and strives to lead the characters along a steep path of self-discovery.

Sherriff’s 'Journey’s End'.

Our Country’s Good has received many a fine review, and critics are keen to celebrate the committed and versatile cast and the production’s entertaining and engaging nature.
It surely sent its audience home contemplating its events, and thinking in general, which is the most that can be asked from any production … An outstanding cast of eleven, who made it seem that there were many more people on stage because of their industrious playing of many roles, sank their teeth into the materials great characters and gave us plenty to laugh at and to ponder …

An ensemble piece such as this has no need of elaborate staging, which is just as well because Alastair Whatley’s revival falls into the “two planks and a passion” category, throwing all the dramatic onus on to his generally excellent cast. This is by no means a definitive revival - the pace slackens at times and it needs a lot more energy in the lead up to the final performance - but its importance as a reminder that drama can, and does, play a vital role in penal reform is unassailable.
