Warwick Moss’ upcoming The Silver Tunnel is a whirlwind dark comedy thriller about Sydney’s oldest graveyard and the gloomy secrets it holds.
With the entire play performed in a church, the play stars high profile actor Ric Herbert of The Rocky Horror Show and Underbelly, and a talented newcomer, Tim Matthews, who has credits in Studio 3 and Disney Channel.
The Silver Tunnel is set to be performed at Ashfield Uniting Church, the HQ of the Australian Living Treasure, Reverend Bill Crews.
Crews has been an advocate for the poor and needy for almost 50 years, launching his free restaurant Loaves And Fishes on the church’s grounds. Church services are mostly held outside nowadays, allowing the church itself to be converted into an arts and entertainment space.
“What a year it’s been eh? No Theatre. No Church,” says Rev Bill.
“Now we’re underway again with a magical combination of both. Like all our endeavours this production is aimed at raising awareness and therefore funds for the poor and disadvantaged people we exist for.
“The beauty of this production is that right through rehearsals and performances, our wonderful homeless and sometimes struggling guests are welcome to attend. After all, this great little play has a huge theme… the wonder and value of life.”
There have been COVID-safe measures put in place, with a capacity of 25 seats per show.
Nov 9-14. Ashfield Uniting Church, 180 Liverpool Rd, Ashfield. FREE. Bookings: www.thesilvertunnel.com
