Adam is ok to share his story – really it’s alright – it’s ok that his life was turned upside down. And the social workers were nice, kinda – and the foster homes, well….and his baby brother Joe?
Removed is the funny, moving and shocking insight into the experiences of a young man sharing his story of living within the state care system.
Adam’s story is fictional. It is not the story of one individual, but rather a combination of the many stories of young people with experiences in the care system. Some stories are sad, some funny, some terrifying but all very real and very important.
★ ★ ★ ★ “one fluid experience through Conor O’Donnell’s robust performance as Adam. As with all good theatre created for young people, the adult audience are merely guests in their space. At one crucial point in the play, the gaze is pushed back on the audience, who must confront their own participation in a society that marginalises the most vulnerable”
Prime Cut productions is one of Ireland’s leading independent theatre companies. Their first show that STET brought to The Hague “My Left Nut” was sold out.
