"The Tullow Road is no destination, but it holds many lives."
Fifteen year old Teegan lives on the Tullow Road. A war is raging, and today petrol has run out. No Petrol, no cars, no friends, no shopping, no chipper, no late night drives; Teegan wants to escape the Tullow Road in a rush of adrenaline. She meets Clara and together they run to find a way out.
Rubbish is co-created with people who live on the Tullow Road, who share the love for where they are growing up. They all hope one day to move to other destinations and look back on a childhood full of marvellous people and stories.

Outlandish Theatre Platform operates from a belief in cultural democracy and invested social engagement, using experimental and participatory processes. We are committed to producing important theatre and performance projects through community collaboration, which places people’s everyday experience central to their own representation. We invest in long-term partnerships with local communities, actively inviting intergenerational diverse community participants as vital co-creators in the experimental process.
Outlandish Theatre Platform operates through two strands: Strand one with master projects in which we collaborate with community participants and professionals in the research, development and the outcome phase. Strand two with Open Theatre Practice, a weekly open performance-making workshop, open to the public, where no previous arts experience is required.
The master projects and Open Theatre Practice interconnect symbiotically. Our long-term objective is to develop and create new audiences and creators through participation focussed on the contexts of community, arts, health and youths.
