Our Country's Good by Timberlake Wertenbaker

We are very excited to welcome Masque Theatre back to the Playhouse with a brilliant play by Timberlake Wertenbaker.

Our Country's Good is set in a New South Wales penal colony in 1789. It's a true story of love, imprisonment and the theatre.

A young lieutenant is directing rehearsals of the first play ever to be performed in that country - with only two copies of the text, a cast of convicts and one leading lady who may be hanged.

Our Country's Good won the Olivier award in 1988 for Best new play. It was performed on Broadway and was nominated for several Tony awards. It has been performed all over the world and is regularly performed by drama students and is an A Level set text for Drama.

Mark Morris

Mark Morriss is a singer songwriter who made his name fronting The Bluetones. Mark fronted the four piece over a successful and fruitful 15 year period, scoring 14 top ten singles and 3 top ten albums, whilst touring the UK, Europe and Japan, before temporarily disbanding in 2011.

After releasing his debut solo album ‘Memory Muscle’ in 2008, Mark banded together The Mummys and hit the road. He spent the best part of that year touring ‘Memory Muscle’ while The Bluetones took a short sabbatical. After returning to The Bluetones to record ‘A New Athens’, Mark re-focused his attention on his solo career. In 2013 he recorded ‘A Flash of Darkness’, given a general release by Acid Jazz Records the following year. 

Since 2013 Mark has also been a member of Acid Jazz label-mate Matt Berry’s touring band The Maypoles. When in 2015 The Bluetones announced that they would be returning to play a series of anniversary shows it started to look like there was never going to be time to start work on solo record #4, but time was found. Titled ‘Look Up’, initially in 2017 before a broader all-formats release in 2019.

The Weir
by Conor McPherson

A bar in a remote part of Ireland: the local lads are swapping ghost stories to impress a young woman from Dublin, newly moved into the area. But she has a story of her own. Conor McPherson's haunting elegiac play is a masterpiece of modern theatre.

This amateur production is presented by arrangement with Nick Hern Books.
