Playwright Caryl Churchill Squeezes More Agitprop Into Fewer Minutes


The New York Theater Workshop is considering bringing over a ten-minute Caryl Churchill play, Seven Jewish Children — a Play for Gaza, currently dividing London critics for reducing Israeli attitudes to dogmatic one-liners. The Times has focused on the controversy that NYTW faced when it canceled the similarly themed My Name is Rachel Corrie, but we're merely concerned about having to sit through even ten minutes of the indecipherable agitprop that began with last season’s 45-minute Drunk Enough to Say I Love You?
