Post-show discussion: Our Country’s Good at REP Birmingham

We will be delivering a post-show discussion following the below performance of Our Country's Good on 23rd May 2018 at Birmingham Repertory Theatre.

Wednesday 23rd May 2018 - 19:30

Venue: Birmingham Repertory Theatre

Presented by A Nottingham Playhouse Theatre Company, in co-production with Ramps on the Moon.

Both a comedy and a powerful drama, Our Country's Good shows us how we can escape the chains that bind us.

In 1787, ships each with over 700 convicts on board set sail on an eight month voyage. When they arrive in Australia, their survival is by no means certain: supplies are running out, the convicts are stealing food or trying to escape and the guards are threatening mutiny.

Our Country's Good tells the extraordinary true story of a group of convicts and a young officer who rehearse and perform a play - Australia's first theatrical production. With opposition from the officers and a leading lady who may be hanged, the odds are stacked against them.


This is a great opportunity to hear about our work delivering theatre-based projects in prison settings. Our CEO Andy will provide a fascinating insight into a theatre world that is often hidden and discuss the modern challenges and opportunities that we face. There will also be a brief demonstration of our work.

Tickets are available from the REP website we are pleased to be able to offer tickets for £10 - just use the code COUNTRYGEESE at checkout.

The code is only valid for the 23rd May performance, and there is a limit of two tickets per person
This production of Our Country's Good is presented by A Nottingham Playhouse Theatre Company, in co-production with Ramps on the Moon.  Geese are not performing, we will be presenting the post show discussion only.
