UTS Backstage Presents: The Removalists
24 March, 2016

Join us for our FIRST production of 2016, David Williamson’s ‘The Removalists’.
An Australian classic set in the 1970s, ‘The Removalists’ remains hauntingly relevant today, exploring themes of violence, abuse of authority and what it means to be A Man. The play begins in a small police station tucked away in the suburbs where Sergeant Simmonds inducts a new recruit, fresh out of the police academy, into the reality of police life. Their day takes a turn when two sisters, Kate and Fiona, arrive to file a domestic violence report against Fiona’s abusive husband, Kenny. The play builds to a violent crescendo that ends in a poignant examination of Australian attitudes to violence and power.

Performances will be taking place, for the first time for UTS Backstage, at the Hellenic Art Theatre, described by Time Out Sydney as a “hidden theatrical gem in the heart of Marrickville”.
The address is Building 36, Addison Road Community Centre, Marrickville, New South Wales 2204
TRANSPORT: Make sure to search for the Addison Road Community Centre, Marrickville in trip view or google maps when coming to the theatre. The Hellenic Art Theatre itself is Building 36 of the community centre. There will be a backstage banner out the front.
If you're catching public transport, the 428 bus from railway square will take you to a stop (Addison Road, near England Ave) right outside the driveway. The 423, 426 and M30 will also take you to the end of Addison Road and from there it's an easy walk to the theatre.
If you're driving, the best entry is on Addison road. There is a large carpark available to us within the community centre, so you don't find street parking.
