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.
