Show Description:

June 1789. In the penal colony that will later become Sydney, Australia, a Marine lieutenant is tasked with putting on a play to celebrate the king's birthday. The only catch? His cast members are the English convicts who populate this distant Australian prison camp. Few of them can read, let alone act, and the play is being produced against a background of food shortages and barbaric punishments. Will this theatrical endeavor have the desired civilizing influence, or will everything implode before the curtain goes up?
