Our Country's Good

By Timberlake Wertenbaker


Captain Phillip believes that it is his Officers’ duty to rehabilitate convicts rather than continually punish them for their criminal past. He commissions a young and opportunistic Second Lieutenant, Ralph Clark, to stage a theatre production performed by the inmates. Battling ridicule and the threat of hanging, Ralph and the actors discover the lives they could have led if society had cast them in different roles.

"Unexpected situations are often matched by unexpected virtues, are they not?"
