‘Voyage‘ is a universal journey story combining Australia History, Original Song Writing & 3 Female lead performers that tell the unknown story of Australian Women.

Voyage is a stunning piece of original musical theatre, based on the research of historian and genealogist, Dr Liz Rushen.

It follows the Voyage of over two hundred single and free emigrant women to Sydney from England in 1833.

The show explores the process of emigration, the effects of leaving homelands for good, the hopes and dreams of the new immigrants, the experience of a long sea journey and the attitudes of those awaiting them in Sydney.
