For the second instalment of DEADHOUSE: Tales of Sydney Morgue’s second season, Actors Anonymous and Blancmange Productions bring to light a classic story of the Australian bloke. Kevin Simmonds and Leslie Newcombe were underdogs whose petty crimes and dangerous mistakes set them on the run.
DEADHOUSE: Tales of Sydney Morgue returns for its second season presenting site-specific and interactive theatre experiences to reveal the hidden history of Sydney. Inspired by Caroline Overington’s book Last Woman Hanged, Louisa Collins: A Poison Crown explores the mystery surrounding two deaths, four trials, and a woman hanged.
Two young people feel inspired to understand the world through new eyes and decide to try out homelessness for a week. When they befriend a pair of genuinely destitute young people, the cruelty of their actions becomes apparent. This new Australian play about youth on the streets interrogates the misinformation and ill-feeling around homelessness from opposing perspectives.
