Deadhouse: Tales of Sydney Morgue
Head underground to watch true crime, history and drama collide in the return of 'Deadhouse'.
When you think Halloween, you probably don't immediately think theatre. However, there's something spooky about heading down into a crypt for a show — so, if that sounds like your cup of tea, Deadhouse: Tales of Sydney Morgue is for you. Down in the crypt of St James Church, the second season of Deadhouse promises a collision of Aussie history, true crime, and drama across two immersive plays.
Kicking off between October 23 and November 9, you can catch the return of Louisa Collins: A Poison Crown. The tale sees 19th-century widow Louise attempt to prove her innocence in the murder of her two husbands. Or, if a story of jailbreak and life on the run tickles your fancy, you'll want to check out Simmonds & Newcombe: The Deadly Run from November 20–30.
For each show, a guide will take audiences through the eerie tunnels and rooms, while the dark scenes play out around you. Since both shows run twice a night for an audience of less than 30, you'll want to get in quick and nab your spot.
