In the 1780s, convicts and Royal Marines were sent to Australia as part of the first penal colony there. Once having arrived in Sydney, the convicts form an acting troupe in order to put on a production of “The Recruiting Officer” for the naval officers who in turn become their “captive audience”.
Sometimes dark, disturbing and often humorous, this six-time Tony Award-winning play shows the class system in the convict camp and discusses themes such as sexuality, punishment, the Georgian judicial system, and the idea that it is possible for “theatre to be a humanizing force”.
