Theatre censorship

Other Names:
Banned plays

Public performance of plays considered to be obscene, sacrilegious, subversive or otherwise unacceptable may be banned by the censor, or he may order scenes to be rewritten. Theatres where such plays have been shown may be closed down or refused renewal of licence. Theatre censorship leads to cultural stagnation and may also lead to general apathy and ignorance.
