It starts out sounding somewhat sympathetic to the play:Back in New York, NYTW artistic director James Nicola told Playbill News that he canceled because he and his board "were not confident that we had the time to create an environment where the art could be heard independent of the political issues associated with it."
But the reviewer gets a little tougher here:A dialogue?
The play is uncritically on Corrie's side. Israel is represented as a big foot crushing innocent Palestinians. The plot features no Hamas-sponsored violence and no suicide bombers bent on earthly havoc followed by spiritual glory.
Not only that, representatives of the Palestine Solidarity Committee are passing out literature in the lobby. There's no table representing Israel.
Isn't ConWorks presenting a monologue instead of a dialogue?

During the season, will there be plays or artworks of any kind sympathetic to the struggles of the Israeli people?
"I'll have to double-check on that," he said.
