Thomas Keneally, best known for writing “Schindler’s List” but also the author of historical works about the founding of his native Australia, will turn to that subject in “Transport,” a new musical for which he’s written the book and lyrics.

The show, with music by Larry Kirwan, a playwright and the leader of the rock band Black 47, based in New York, will have its world premiere at the Irish Repertory Theater next year, theater officials announced on Tuesday.

“Transport” is based on the history of Irish women exiled to the South Coast of Australia in the mid-19th century. It centers on the voyage of a prison ship called The Whisper, which brought women and girls to penal colonies. The characters include four prisoners, the ship’s crew and an exiled Irish priest.
