Just in case there was any doubt

Just in case anyone was still wondering whether or not blocking the play at Wilton High was politically motivated, it turns out that the school administration is a little inconsistent in what it classifies as protected speech. Here’s a handy guide:

Writing a school play that deals with Iraq by quoting at length soldiers, some of whom are pro-war and some of whom are anti-war, while examining the toll of the war on both: Offensive, disrespectful and completely inappropriate for a school environment. Must be blocked at all costs.

Saying that writers of said play should be hung as traitors: A-okay!

At least the students involved in the play are getting some positive support – they just received Music Theatre International’s first-ever Courage in Theater Award
