    Dramatic comedy - Full price € 12 - Reduced price € 10 - Mini price € 8 - Free -6 years old England at the start of the nineteenth century: the government orders the sending of female prison overcrowding to Australia. The crossing lasts six months. The play looks at the fate of six women, heavily convicted of relatively minor faults. They make the crossing chained in a cell at the bottom of the hold, delivered to the brutality of the crew. Despite the oppression, loneliness, punitive acts and tears, laughter manages to break the tension and a form of brotherhood unites them in the struggle for survival. This in turn violent, funny, disturbing camera, questions us about the condition reserved for women, and not only in the England of Queen Victoria. Transporting Women is a cry in the wilderness of the sea, not just a lament of life and its imprisonment. It is also a glimmer of hope in a world where one could imagine any form of aborted humanity.
