The Shuster Series Returns to Home Made Theater with “Our Country’s Good”

The Shuster Series of play readings is once again being presented by Home Made Theater. The first play in the series is scheduled for Saturday, January 22nd from 10:15-1:15. Participants will be reading Our Country’s Good by Timberlake Wertenbaker. 

Join in for a “round table” play reading as participants dissect and discuss some of the theater’s great literature as a group. Based on true events, Our Country’s Good is set in Sydney, Australia in the early days of the settlement of Australia as a penal Colony. The play is about a comedy called The Recruiting Officer, being performed using convicts as the actors, and directed by a very earnest young officer. Roles are assigned therefore all who attend get plenty of “performance” time. Audience members (non-readers)are also welcome.

The Shuster Series play readings will be held at the Ballston Spa Public Library at 21 Milton Avenue, Ballston Spa. Other dates in this season are February 19th, March 19th, April 16th, and May 21st. All readings will be from 10:15 am -1:15 pm. Participation is free, though there is a suggested donation of $5 to cover the cost of printing.
