This chapter examines the collaborative process that was used to develop Timberlake Wertenbaker’s Our Country’s Good (1989), and in doing so, reaches a conclusion about the relationship between Wertenbaker and director Max Stafford-Clark, their own preoccupations that were inherent in the development of the project and the extent of the creative agency of the performers who participated in the process.
