OUR COUNTRY’S GOOD

Description

Boston University College of Fine Arts School of Theatre presents OUR COUNTRY’S GOOD | By Timberlake Wertenbaker | Directed by Judy Braha | February 20-23 | In June 1789 in the penal colony that was later to become the city of Sydney, a marine lieutenant decides to put on a play to celebrate the king's birthday. He casts the play with the English convicts who populate this distant Australian prison camp. Few of them can read, let alone act, and the play is being produced against a background of food shortages and barbaric punishments--brilliantly juxtaposed against the civilizing influence of theatrical endeavor. | $15 General Admission | $10 BU Alumni | Free with BU ID, at the door, day of performance, subject to availability | bu.edu/cfa/season or 617.353.3380
