August 2019 UPDATE: Thank You to everyone who helped make LadyShip a huge success at NYMF 2019! We had sold-out shows, standing ovations, and LadyShip's journey is just beginning.
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. LadyShip was an official Grand Jury Selection for the Next Link Project for the New York Musical Festival 2019 and had five shows at the Alice Griffin Jewel Box Theatre, NY, NY July 10-14, 2019.
Is it a crime to survive? Convicted of petty crimes and sentenced to journey to a land they had never known, teenage Irish sisters Alice and Mary are forced to make the treacherous crossing from London to Australia in 1789. With a contemporary alt/pop score by Linda and Laura Good of the band The Twigs, Ladyship reminds us that whether in the 18th century or now, this story is all too familiar — when given no say in their lives or the world around them women will always find their own voice. Based on true events, this is the harrowing story of the 25,000 women who would become the “mothers of Australia”, whether they wanted to be or not.
