Back in May this year I predicted something of the kind might happen to this very play (comments at http://foreigndispatches.typepad.com/dispatches/2005/05/blame_where_bla.html). Not a very difficult prophecy to make, I grant you. Next up for a ban: Dante's "Inferno"? Beckford's "Vathek"? Mummers' plays? Who knows in our wonderful new world of artistic freedom.


"if they had not altered the original it “would have unnecessarily raised the hackles of a significant proportion of one of the world’s great religions”."

Did anyone say that after "Life of Brian" was released?
