Back to Back takes to the screen

Posted 19 September 2017

ODDLANDS is the story of Des (Simon Laherty) and Tam (Sonia Teuben), members of a clean-up crew in a strange toxic wasteland. It’s a lousy job, but it’s the best they can get, and it may just get them what they want. When they stumble upon what may be the wasteland’s last human survivor, these determined but lowly Level 7s will have to decide between saving humanity or saving themselves…

Back to Back Theatre and Matchbox Pictures collaborate to produce ODDLANDS, a new 30 minute film that premieres at Adelaide Film Festival on 10 October 2017. Ensemble members Simon Laherty and Sonia Teuben take lead roles, with members of our Theatre of Speed workshop appearing as extras, alongside critically acclaimed actors Jacek Koman and Robin Ramsay.

For a sneak peek into the show ahead of its first screening, you can see the ODDLANDS trailer here.

We’re also thrilled to extend an invitation to see ODDLANDS at the Adelaide Film Festival. If you are planning on going, for tickets.
