The Good Girl Song Project

Voyage is a new theatrical song cycle that explores the precarious lives of immigrant women in 19th century Australia. 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.

Voyage blurs the lines between theatre, opera and song cycle to bring to life the work of renowned Australian historian Dr Liz Rushen. Featuring two actors, two musicians, eleven characters and seventeen original songs, Voyage, brings a fresh female perspective to early Australian immigration.

There has been little crossover between contemporary theatre and Australian folk music, until now.
