‘Analysis of The Removalists reveals its “primitive drive of assertive individualism”, its “authoritarian” concerns and its “practical” demonstration of abused power are all blatantly gendered. According to established paradigms of feminist theatre study, The Removalists may be the work of an author described as a ‘post-feminist anti-feminist’, yet it is–in both form and content–a feminist play.’ - Van Badham
