Our Country's Good: Out Of Joint Theatre Company, Octagon Theatre Bolton
Australia, 1789. An ambitious young lieutenant, Ralph Clark, is set the task of directing newly arrived convicts in the Restoration comedy The Recruiting Officer in celebration of the King's birthday.
But with a dispirited cast, just two copies of the script, opposition from sadistic officers, a leading lady who faces the gallows, and Ralph's uncontrollable passion for one of his
convict players, Australia's first theatre production is in trouble from the start...
Epic, inquisitive, original and authentic, Out Of Joint develops and tours entertaining theatre that broadens horizons and investigates our times.
It has premiered plays by such writers as Caryl Churchill, David Edgar, David Hare, Mark Ravenhill and Robin Soans and its productions include Stella Feehily's play about the NHS, This May Hurt A Bit, and an acclaimed revival of Timberlake Wertenbaker's Our Country's Good.
