Imagine the cancellations and probable prosecutions if a white director suggested an evening free from the Ďblack gazeí.

(Radio listeners could of course be excused if they misinterpreted Xiaís words as being homophobic as well as racist.)

Just publicity froth. And on one level I don't have a problem with limiting the audience. The only time I would be opposed is if the production is in anyway publicly financed. But if not, then a commercial decision.

And do any of us want to go?

You would be happy if a white director put on a play and said that they only wanted white people to see it so that they could experience it without being looked at by black people?

is Anjem Choudery Racist against white people ? or is it only 'non muslims' that he seems to hate ?

and is he allowed to say violent homophobic stuff if he is hiding behind an ancient Holy book ?

and some Christian places can be very homophobic too....

Yes. The director should have that freedom unless there is public funding involved.

The theatre involved is the Theatre Royal, Stratford East. It is bunged a million pounds a year by the Arts Council England as there seems to be minimal audiences for their offerings.

If the white director did what I said, he would of course be arrested and charged with some sort of hate crime, whereas Matthew Xia is free to make his racist comments.
