“Eerily Atmospheric” Weekend Notes

“If you’re a true-crime nerd or history buff… it’s a killer show!” Theatre Travels

In 1959, two convicts, Kevin Simmonds and Leslie Newcombe undertook an audacious escape from Sydney's notorious Long Bay Penitentiary, leading to a weeks-long hunt involving more than 500 police officers and scores of dogs. 

Escaping from the gaol through a ventilation duct in the roof of the prison chapel, they spent their first night of freedom huddled in a freshly dug grave in Botany Cemetery before breaking into Emu Plains Prison Farm. There they murdered a guard to steal his revolver before hiding in bushland.

Their ability to elude capture and outfox police made the two men famous during their time on the run. Five weeks later crowds cheered ‘Simmo’ when he was eventually brought to Sydney’s Central Criminal Court for trial.

Staged in the 200 year old crypt under St James’ Church Sydney, DEADHOUSE Tales of Sydney Morgue returns for a much-anticipated third season. Meet the characters, brought to life by a talented cast of fifteen actors, experience key events in their history, and discover what really happened to these infamous men.

Each guided performance is limited to 30 ticket holders.
