"Mo is 31. He works in an immigration removal centre. He’s a Detention Officer. He wears a shirt, a tie, and sometimes even trousers. He's from Bishops Stortford. Mo's in trouble. Mo's in love." Described as an electrifying story of love, violence and power which gets to the heart of 21st Century Britain, revealing a nation brutalised and confused by systems of inequality, incorporating live songs, music and dance.
The cast features Mark Field (Mo), Clare Perkins (Beatrice) and Barnaby Power (George).
Removal Men has an age guidance of 14+ and contains strong language, violence and sexual content.
