Well, there you have it. Uproar and hoopla before it happens, and in the end, a modest run of a modest one-woman show.
I'm curious: Do you think this play would have gone further had Rachel Corrie lit herself on fire and protested Israel on-stage? If the attempt to impact or incite passions was more direct, more unapologetic?
What accounts for this unceremonious exit?
