Location

The crypt, St. James Church 173 King Street Sydney, NSW 2000

The Story

It’s a decade after the Great War and a new war is brewing in Sydney, the war between the Razor Gangs.

Kate Leigh and Tilly Devine have conquered 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 police woman. Lillian forms a strong bond with sex worker Nellie Cameron and ultimately must face Snow Queen Kate Leigh and Queen of the Bordello Tilly Devine to earn her place on the force and change the face of women in the police forever.

RAZOR GANG WARS

comes alive when you meet the characters, experience the events and battles of 1927-29 in the 200 year old crypt under St James' Church Sydney. A maximum audience of 30 will be guided through the crypt and 12 actors will play scenes before your eyes.

Your guide reveals the shocking truth

For many centuries in the northern hemisphere morgues were called Deadhouses because bodies could not be buried in the winter when the ground was frozen, so the dead were stored in Deadhouses until the thaw. Prior to 1972 our Deadhouse was the Sydney Morgue and Coroner’s Court located in lower George Street. Our tales are derived from the thousands of cases that passed through that grim and intriguing place.

Immerse yourself in the crypt

Join us and immerse yourself in some classic Australian tales of true crime as you’re guided through scenes that unfold before you in the crypt under St James' Church, the two hundred year old sandstone structure designed by early Sydney's renown convict architect, Francis Greenway. This is a burial ground.
