Northern Irish DUP Censors Bible Play
The Reduced Shakespeare Company is a comedy troupe that has put on parody performances of the complete works of Shakespeare, all the Great Books, American history, and the wide world of sports. Their twenty-year-old play, The Bible: The Complete Word of God (trailer) was set to open in Newtownabbey, outside of Belfast, NI. However, after getting objections from Democratic Union Party members, the town artistic council cancelled the play. After comedian Tim Minchin tweeted about it, #ThouShallNotLaugh mushroomed.
