LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

Texas Tech University's School of Theatre and Dance is preparing for their newest production, Our Country's Good

The drama is centered around a marine lieutenant who decides to put on a play to celebrate the king's birthday. 

Nate Hall, an actor in the play, said the lieutenant casts the play with English convicts who populate the distant Australian prison camp. 

Hall said the prisoners are not excited about the the play.

Few of them can read, let alone act, and the play is being produced against a background of food shortages and barbaric punishments. 

The play runs May 4-7 at the Maedgen Mainstage Theatre.

Tickets are $18 for individuals and $5 for students who bring a student ID.
