_______________________________________

In the midst of convict boats arriving each week from Britain, a different cargo leaves for Australia. On board are 287 single and free women.

They have been promised good wages, good work and good marriage prospects. To claim this promising new life they must first survive the voyage then win over the Sydney establishment.

There has been little crossover between contemporary theatre and Australian folk music, until now. “Voyage” blurs the lines between theatre, opera and song cycle to bring to life the work of renowned Australian historian Dr Liz Rushen.

Written by Helen Begley, onstage “Voyage” features actors, Carly Ellis and Penny Larkins, who play eleven characters and our musicians, Helen Begley, Kylie Morrigan and Penelope Swales accompanying seventeen original songs. They bring a fresh female perspective to early Australian immigration. A new theatrical song cycle that explores the precarious lives of immigrant women in 19th century Australia.

The Good Girl Song Project is committed to transmitting Australian women’s history stories through song and theatre making. The work is driven by a collaboration of female creatives and technicians who create and deliver performances and workshops. Through this work, the team encourages audiences and workshop participants to reflect on women’s place in their personal and community histories.
