    In 1789 in an Australian penal colony, a marine lieutenant decides to put on a play to celebrate the king's birthday.

Few of them can read, let alone act, and the play is produced against a background of food shortages and barbaric punishments--brilliantly juxtaposed against the civilizing influence of theatrical endeavor.
