LADYSHIP THE MUSICAL

Teenage Irish sisters Alice and Mary, convicted of petty crimes and sentenced to journey to an unknown land, are forced to make the treacherous crossing from London to Australia in 1789. Based on true events, Ladyship is the harrowing story of some of the 25,000 women who would become the “mothers of Australia”, whether they wanted to be or not. With a contemporary alternative pop score, the story of Ladyship is all too familiar, whether in the 18th century or now — when given no say in their lives or the world around them, women will always find their own voice.

Ladyship is a new musical with Book, Music and Lyrics by Laura Good and Linda Good, aka the alternative pop duo, The Twigs. Ladyship debuted in NYC as an Official Grand Jury production at the New York Musical Festival 2019, directed by Samantha Saltzman. It and was a finalist for the Richard Rodgers Award for Musical Theatre 2020. Ladyship the Musical (Original Concept Recording) is now available on all digital streaming platforms, and CDs on bandcamp.

 Ladyship the Musical is now available for direct licensing. Contact ladyship@twigs.com.

Ladyship (High School Edition) debuted in 2023, and is also now available for licensing.
