By Fionnuala Kennedy

Removed is the funny, poignant and affecting story of Adam that offers a glimpse into the often-unknown experiences of growing up as a “Looked After” child in the youth care system of Ireland.

Removed is not based on the experiences of one individual, but rather an amalgam of the many interviews gathered by Fionnuala Kennedy, with Voice of Young People In Care, a group of young people with care experience who are campaigning for changes to the care system in Northern Ireland.

Based in Belfast, prime cut productions is one of Ireland’s leading independent theatre companies. Prime cut first produced the world premiere of the play at the young art Belfast Children’s Festival in March 2019.
