More details:

From Time Out’s 'critic's choice' review: ‘Wertenbaker’s play concerns the transformative effect of theatre upon a ragtag group of convicts, shipped to Australia in the 1780s, and treated as subhuman by the resentful marines charged with establishing the colony. The parallels between both ’80s and austerity Britain are writ large… it’s a pointed choice of revival.

Moreover, it remains an exceptional piece of writing… Wertenbaker writes mostly unsentimentally and always interestingly, conjuring a deliciously detailed world of salty characters and unabashedly numerous subplots, all seasoned with an ironic staginess. In one of the funniest scenes, Clark berates his heavily doubled cast – themselves played by a heavily doubled cast –– for suggesting that an audience might find it difficult to follow what’s going on.

Max Stafford-Clark directs with a lightness of touch which avoids both shouty polemic and undue melodrama. And the cast is first rate, the women in particular: Lisa Kerr is charismatic and fabulously complicated as the sharp-eyed Duckling Smith, while the emotional blossoming of Kathryn O’Reilly’s hard-nosed Liz Morden is poignant and painful.’
