The Good Girl Song Project is proud to present our most recent production, Voyage.

Until now, there’s been little crossover between contemporary theatre, Australian folk music and academia. These three worlds collide in the new work “Voyage” by Helen Begley with a story that emerged from the work of Australian historian, Dr Liz Rushen. In the midst of convict ships arriving each week from Britain, a different cargo leaves for Australia. On board are 287 immigrant women enticed by promises of a better life. What waits for them in Sydney will determine their success. “Voyage” features two actors, thirteen characters, seventeen songs, three onstage musicians and is directed by Ruby Rees.
