THE play ‘Our Country’s Good’ by Timber-
lake Wertenbaker is based on the Thomas Ken-
nelly novel, The Playmaker and requires a cast
of 13 adults of varying ages.
Experienced director Sue Lindsay who has
worked in both school and community theatre
is looking for seven male and five female actors
to create the 22 characters featured in this fast
The added challenge of alternating between
representing a British Officer and a convict will
appeal to potential cast members.
The colourful, earthy and often humorous
characters in Our Country’s Good are based
on real people who sailed on the first fleet and
become involved in preparing a play for the en-
tertainment of the early settlement.
This highlights their differing attitudes to
crime and punishment, as well as their visions
of hope and redemption.
An Information Session will be held at the
Lyric Eagger Studio (13 Watson Road, Leon-
gatha) on April 1 at 4pm with auditions by ap-
pointment on April 8 and 11.
For further information: www.lyrictheatre.
net.au or phone Sue Lindsay 0409 191 148.
