Thought-provoking polemic Our Country's Good heads to Tobacco Factory
PUBLISHED: 18:00 21 April 2019
A new production of thought-provoking political drama Our Country's Good, is heading to Bristol's Tobacco Factory Theatres for the next few weeks.
Directed by Anna Girvan, the Factory Company will perform the classic play based on the lives of real people who sailed with the First Fleet; a group of convicts and soldiers sent to Australia to set up a new penal colony, which became the first European settlement.
The play tells the tale of Captain Phillip who believes it is his Officers' duty to rehabilitate convicts rather than punish them.
He commissions young Second Lieutenant, Ralph Clark, to stage a production performed by the inmates.
Our Country's Good will be at The Tobacco Factory Theatre in Raleigh Road, from yesterday (Wednesday) to May 11, at 2.30pm and 7.30pm.
Tickets, priced £12-£18, are available on 01179 020 344 or online at www.tobaccofactorytheatres.com
