REVIEWS

"Wertenbaker has searched history and found in it a humanistic lesson for hard modern times: rough, sombre, undogmatic and warm" ~ Sunday Times

"Highly theatrical, often funny and at times dark and disturbing, it sets an infant civilization on the stage with clarity, economy and insight" ~ Charles Spencer, Daily Telegraph

"Rarely has the redemptive, transcendental power of theatre been argued with such eloquence and passion" ~ Georgina Brown, Independent

Our Country's Good premiered at the Royal Court Theatre, London, in 1988 and opened on Broadway in 1991
