Timberlake Wertenbaker's Our Country's Good Summary


Timberlake Wertenbaker's Our Country's Good: A Study Guide by Max Stafford-Clark

'Modern classic' is the fitting accolade bestowed on Our Country's Good soon after its premiere in 1988, directed by Max Stafford-Clark at the Royal Court Theatre. The play tells the story of a production of George Farquhar's 1706 play The Recruiting Officer by a company of convicts in the early days of the Australian penal colony. The Page to Stage series offers insightful and authoritative introductions by well-known theatre professionals. Instead of an academic or analytical study of the play, Stafford-Clark brings his own involvement in its history, and his unrivalled experience as a director, to presenting an in-depth study of how it actually works on stage. After an introduction about the creation of the play, the reader is conducted through its action, the historical context, its characters, and how the play was rehearsed and designed for its original production.

Timberlake Wertenbaker's Our Country's Good Reviews


A very authoritative teaching and learning resource. --The Stage There cannot be a better selection to write an in-depth analysis of Our Country's Good than Max Stafford-Clark, the director who commissioned and helped to create the work. Even Timberlake Wertenbaker herself might struggle to analyse her writing any better. --British Theatre Guide
