Drama (Weitz Theater)
Thu., May 4 7:30 Carleton Players production of “Our Country’s Good”
The play, based on the true story of the founding of Sydney, Australia as a penal colony 1788, pits the sadistic Major Robbie Ross against Admiral Arthur Phillip and Lieutenant Ralph Clark, who together help the convicts transcend their bestial existence by doing . . . a play. At turns dramatic and comic, Our Country’s Good is finally an impassioned expression of the redemptive power of art.
