28/02/06 : Article about the "My name is Rachel
Corrie" cancellation in New-York
This article from the newspaper The Guardian explains
why the artistic director of the New-York Theater
Workshop, James Nicola, has "postponed" the play
directed by Alan Rickman for at least one year. In fact,
after having consulted the New-York Jewish communities,
James Nicola would have thought that it was risked to put
the play on stage, in a strained Middle-East context, in
particular since Ariel Sharon's illness and the election of
Hamas. Alan Rickman thinks that it's a real cancellation
and a censorship of his play.

until May 21th, at the London's Playhouse Theatre.
