Spectrum Theatre’s first production this year will be an amateur production of  'Female Transport'.

Set in the harsh time of 1807 on a convict ship the play focuses in on the lives of six women convicts as they are transported to a life of hard labor in Britain’s overseas penal colony (Australia).

While Female Transport is classified as a drama, there are plenty of lighter moments and earthy humour as the six women try to get the better of their captors, producing some beautifully sharp and dark one-liners.

Tickets are 25 dollars each, which can be bought down at Paperbark Merchants on York Street.

  WARNING some depictions in the production may cause stress including themes of suicide.
