Caryl Churchill's play for Gaza

Predictably, the playwright Caryl Churchill is under attack for her 10-minute theater piece titled "Seven Children: A Play for Gaza," currently being staged at the Royal Court Theatre in London. I salute her, not only for writing it but for making the text available for free to anyone who wants to perform it. Tickets to the Royal Court production are free; the performance is followed by a collection for Medical Aid for Palestinians.
