Our Country’s Good


Upper School Play 2016

PortlandPlace Schoolpresents Our Country’s Good at Theatro Technis, Mornington Crescent. The cast of student from Year 10 – 13 will be performing Thursday, 8 December and Friday, 9 December 2016.

In January 1788, the first of the British prison ships arrive at Botany Bay, Australia and settle the penal colony at Port Jackson, the site of current-day Sydney. Many of the prisoners have committed minor crimes and their wardens are military men who fought and lost the war against the American colonies. When hope and supplies run low, a lieutenant tries to increase morale by staging a comedy, The Recruiting Officer by George Farquhar, using the convicts as the cast.
