Removable Parts is a theatrical series of love songs about voluntary amputation. In an updated version of the lover’s plaint, the unrequited lover – whose heart is broken – begins to question the usefulness of his other body parts. Loosely based on medical journals, psychiatric case studies, and actors’ monologue collections, the songs and banter in Removable Parts take a sideways look at amputees, devotees, and wannabes, with a balance of empathy and irreverence.
