In 1788, 9 British convict ships, 2 escorts and 3 supply ships landed in what was to become Sydney, Australia.  They were the first of thousands of petty criminals  sent to build the British colony.  In this award winning, gripping tale, nine of these prisoners and their jailers seek relief, redemption and escape by putting on a play.  Wonderful characters and brilliant writing, this story will transport you.


Our Country’s Good is great

“In Devine’s hands the play, which at times can be brutal, at times bawdy, and at times stunningly beautiful, transports the audience…” – Barnstable Patriot
