THE REMOVALISTS

by David Williamson

Available here as a single edition.
Also published in Plays of the 70s: Volume 1

The play is set in 1971, a turbulent time in Australia's social history. A young policeman’s first day on duty becomes a violent and highly charged initiation into law enforcement, as the rookie cop becomes involved in a case of suspected domestic violence.

Remarkable for its blend of boisterous humour and horrifying violence, the play has acquired a reputation as a classic statement on Australian authoritarianism and is a key work in the study of Australian drama.

Read Van Badham’s response to The Removalists in The Unexpected Feminist, a free essay from Currency Press.
