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 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 strikes a chord, whether in the 18th century or now — that when given no say in their lives or the world around them, women will always find their own voice.

LADYSHIP is a new musical written by Songwriter/Composers Linda Good and Laura Good, twin sisters and co-founders of the alternative modern pop band The Twigs.
