                                                                                                    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.


                                                                                                    EDIT : the play will be back to London on March 30 th,

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

                                                                                                    There will be a Premiere on March 28th. (Thanks CatsPlay)
