Now our production of 'Our Country's Good' by Timberlake Wertenbaker is in its final weeks of rehearsal, we have been getting our publicity organised. The photographer from the local paper came to take some pictures and the producer of the show, Dawn, took some photos at the same time.

This photo shows the cast (except Chris, who was having to work late that night) looking sad to be on their way to Australia. We are hiring the uniforms for the officers, so they had to improvise with their costumes. All the convict costumes look in suspiciously good condition for a load of thieves and whores who've just travelled thousands of miles, but we have yet to distress them with mud, tea and dyes to make them look more authentic.

Here is an 'action' photo of the convicts reverting to type! If you would like to find out more about our production, look here.

Looks as though it's going to be a very authentic and successful show - good luck or break-a-leg as they say. I shall be looking out in the local newspapers for you!
