Barn Theatre Club presents
A play that still leaves its audience, like its subjects, transported.
The barren landscape of Australia in 1789 provides the setting for Timberlake Wertenbaker’s classic play that has become perhaps the strongest affirmation yet of the redemptive power of theatre.
Based on a true story and full of contemporary relevance, it is a compelling drama. We witness the inspirational transformation of a rag-tag bunch of convicts during the rehearsal process for the first play performed in the fledgling colony of Sydney Cove. They are led by a young naval officer who struggles with the prejudice of his peers, the inhospitable climate and the ever-present threat of the hanging of at least one of his actors. The results are uplifting and affirming for anyone who has ever enjoyed the thrill of performance.
