About this event

Lance Loosley, a boy who's known at school as 'Loser' tells Mike that 'Tenterfield', the old property nearby, which has recently been bought by foreign investors, is being used as a laboratory to run dangerous experiments. Mike doesn't believe Loser for a second because he's always concocting stories to make himself look good. But one day at school, Loser is pushed too far by Budgie and Jordie. This time the humiliation and teasing is too much, and Loser seeks revenge.

He smashes a test tube in class, a test tube that he says contains a deadly virus from the Tenterfield property. When the teacher and students begin having seizures, Mike and Jazz realise that perhaps Lance really was telling the truth...

This thriller is the premier stage adaption of Jackie French's iconic Australian novel.

Presented by:
Deadset Theatre Company

Deadset Theatre Company, founded in 2017, aims to create theatre for and about young people aged between 15 – 26.

DTC is filling a void within Adelaide theatre, giving opportunities to young people who are not often represented onstage.

There are so many roles in Adelaide amateur theatre for older adults, however there are little to no shows that focus solely on young people. Deadset has taken this niche on-board, creating a company to fill that gap.

Deadset’s sole purpose is to create theatre that allows young adults the opportunity to pursue challenging roles onstage, through scripts that are current, relevant and relatable to this generation.
