Bravo! If I lived anywhere near there I'd come see it.

It is ridiculous to set a detective story in New York City. New York City is itself a detective story... AGATHA CHRISTIE, Life magazine, May 14, 1956

Actually, I was surprised because I read in the local paper that it was still in contention, but the theater professor vowed that they'd put it on "somewhere". He's been amazing to keep the fight going.

We plan to see it, of course.

that's depressing because I live in TEXAS and we were allowed to do The Laramie Project two years ago. Bravo for reversing the decision but how disheartening to hear about something like this happening in the first place

I dont like the backpedalling of the Superintendant and the Principal, but am heartened that supposedly thousands of letters and emails flooded their offices in support of putting the play on.
