Remember back in March the scared Connecticut High School principle who banned his students from performing their own protest play against the Iraq war? (Cause that's such a minority fringe wacko opinion, right?)...Well the kids are just fine, and have been taking their show on a veritable downtown tour of some fancy venues, including the Vineyard and the Public.

Encouraging that downtown theatre came through this time.
After an article about the ban appeared in The New York Times, “the whole New York theater community called,” [drama teacher] Dickinson said.Then again, it's easier when it's not really a controversial position anymore.
Then then again, does this mean the only play about Iraq on the boards now is by some teenagers?
