Razorhurst

Date: 16 May 2019

From the 1920s until the 1940s, two vice queens, Kate Leigh and Tilly Devine, ruled the Darlinghurst underworld.

Their rivalry led to a litany of violent crimes enacted by their razor gangs as each struggled to gain dominance in a world of sly grog, narcotics and prostitution.

In 2019, Kate Leigh’s former sly grog shop is about to reopen as a trendy coffee spot. The shop is being gutted for renovation, but there are still ghosts in the walls who aren’t done settling old scores.

This new musical by Kate Mulley and Andy Peterson, explores what it means to be a woman in a man’s world, forced into a life of crime by circumstance.

Debora Krizak is Kate Leigh. Amelia Cormack co-stars as Tilly Divine. Benita De Wit directs.
