DEADHOUSE: The Razor Gang Wars: The Rise of Tilly Devine & Kate Leigh


September 1 - 17, 2022

The Crypt of St James' Church, 173 King Street
Sydney, NSW



After two sell-out seasons in 2018 and 2019, DEADHOUSE: Tales of Sydney Morgue returns this Spring for a chilling third season featuring this premiere story from writer/director Liviu Monsted: The Razor Gang Wars: The Rise of Tilly Devine & Kate Leigh.

It’s a decade after the Great War and a new war is brewing in Sydney. Kate Leigh and Tilly Devine have risen to become the city’s queens of the underworld. But when Norman Bruhn makes a bid to overturn the backstreets of Razorhurst, a war of deceit and violence erupts.

Amid the chaos stands Lillian Armfield, Australia’s first woman detective. Forming a strong bond with sex worker Nellie Cameron, Lillian sets out to calm the streets, but that means taking on The Snow Queen and The Queen of the Bordello. There will be blood, Lillian will earn her place on the force, and the NSW police will be changed forever.

Staged in the 200 year old crypt under St James’ Church Sydney, Deadhouse returns for a much-anticipated third season. Meet the characters, brought to life by a talented cast of fifteen, experience key events, battles won and lost, and discover what really happened to these remarkable women.

Each guided performance is limited to 30 ticket holders.
