Experience true crime stories from Sydney’s dark past under the city this Halloween

This immersive theatre experience will give you goosebumps as you join the story and discover the truth about crimes that have haunted Sydney for decades. Set underneath St James Church in the historical crypt, everything becomes more chilling as you walk through the long tunnel and explore the dark caverns within.

This spooky season, you’ll have the chance to be imbedded in two fascinating cases that will leave you wanting more. Each story is brought to life by ten talented actors who draw a shivering crowd of 30 spectators into Sydney’s historical world crime. 

A Poison Crown transports you to 19th century Sydney where Louisa Collins, who was convicted of killing her two husbands by poisoning them, was the last woman hanged in NSW. With all the doubts about her guilt, it’s up to you to decide if her fate was deserved or a deadly mistake.  

Simmonds & Newcombe: The Deadly Run is another mind-blowing story that will keep you on your feet and running. Find out how two convicts managed to escape and stay undercover while 500 police officers were on their tail for five weeks.

If you miss out on this immersive theatre experience on All Hallow’s Eve itself, fear not (or maybe just a little) because the season runs from October 23-November 30.
