DEADHOUSE: Tales of Sydney Morgue, a new true-crime immersive theatre production, will present two unique stories from Sydney's dark past at the Rocks Discovery Museum from April 24th to May 19th.

Audience members are invited to explore the three levels of the historic 1850s sandstone building as a cast of 11 performers bring to life the notorious crimes of Leonard Lawson and Louisa Collins.

  • Portrait of the Artist as a Murderer - 24th to 28th April and 8th to 12th May

    Portrait of the Artist as a Murderer will present the light and dark sides of Leonard "Lennie" Lawson and depictions of his horrendous crimes. In the 1950s, Lennie descended into a frenzy of violent crime and spent seven years in jail for rape and sexual assault. After being released, Lennie sexually assaulted and murdered a 16-year-old girl while painting her portrait, and held a group of teachers and schoolgirls hostage before killing one of the students. Lennie was sentenced to life in prison and died in 2003, aged 76.

  • A Poison Crown - 1st to 5th May and 15th to 19th May

    Set in 19th century Sydney, A Poison Crown brings to life the characters who fought for and against convicted murderer Louisa Collins' appointment with the gallows. Tried four times and eventually convicted, Louisa was the last woman hanged in New South Wales after it was discovered that both her husbands had died from arsenic poisoning.
