Churchill's Play for Gaza at the Royal Court
The Royal Court in London has wasted no time responding to the recent crisis in Gaza, and all thanks to Caryl Churchill’s breakneck pen-pace. Her new play, Seven Jewish Children – A Play for Gaza, is ten-minutes long, starts rehearsals this week, and will begin performances on February 6th through the 21st after Marius von Mayenburg's The Stone. The free performance will hold a collection after the show for the charity Medical Aid for Palestinians. After its run at the Royal Court, Churchill will put the play up online and let anyone, anywhere perform it, copyright free, as long as they raise money for the people in Gaza.
