About the show

Theatre SKAM proudly presents Backliners, a livestreamed comedy play about vulnerability and the anxiety of feeling out of control. When six teens with social anxiety are forced into an improv class, tensions run high, alliances and rivalries are formed, and secrets come out. Can they stick it out together to make it to their final performance?

Backliners is a new SKAM Young Company play written by Ellery Lamm (2019 Pick of the Fringe: Best Original New Work, Best Drama, 2018 Pick of the Fringe: Overall Favourite Show, Bravest Show). This is livestream theatre you don’t want to miss! The show will be livestreaming out of SKAM’s Satellite Studio in Victoria.
