Is Caryl Churchill an Anti-Semite?

No. Read why I think not in this review of her controversial new playlet “Seven Jewish Children: A Play for Gaza.”  It caused a major row in England when it debuted at the Royal Court in February, and the controversy came and went last week in the U.S.  (Went, because it was only shown for three days at the New York Theatre Workshop, and two at the J Theater in Washington.)  But it still has legs in Britain, with the BBC recently announcing that it wouldn’t allow it to be screened on its station.  Anyway, you can read about all the drama, both in and about the work, in my earlier reported story as the play was still being performed, and of course the review I linked to above.
