Our Country's Good plays at the Barn Theatre in Welwyn Garden City


Fresh from a sold-out production of Noël Coward comedy Hay Fever, the Barn Theatre presents Our Country’s Good this month.

Opening on Friday, February 7, a ragtag bunch of convicts rehearse a play in 18th century Australia, under the direction of a young naval officer.

Timberlake Wertenbaker’s compelling and ultimately uplifting drama can be seen at the Welwyn Garden City theatre from February 7 to Saturday, February 15.

Tickets cost £11.

* See this week’s Welwyn Hatfield Times, out Wednesday, for a full preview of the play.
