The USC School of Theatre’s fall production is Timberlake Wertenbaker’s Our Country’s Good. Based on Thomas Keneally’s novel The Playmaker, the play is a fact-based drama. It recounts the story of how prisoners of the first British penal colony were—in the face of great hardship—organized into a theater company during the 1780s.

In cooperation with the USC School of Theatre, Anthony Anderson of the USC Libraries has selected resources to help you learn more about Australian history and the development of theatre in the former British penal colony.
