Roger Rogerson vs Sallie-Anne Huckstepp

by Liviu Monsted.

This new Deadhouse immersive theatre tale gives you an up-close live view of the true crime story surrounding Sallie-Anne Huckstepp. A woman who challenges police corruption while trying to come to terms with her complicated past. Her past was defined by abusive relationships, drug addiction, and the stresses of providing for a daughter.

After the controversial shooting of her boyfriend, Warren Lanfranchi, at the hands of corrupt police officer Roger Rogerson, Sallie-Anne is determined to escape her past and to fight against the system that seeks to silence her.

The media listens, but retribution shadows her. You'll meet Sallie-Anne, Roger Rogerson, Neddy Smith, Richard Neville and more characters from the world of crime.
