The Royal Court Theatre, and the Royal Court


Another interesting point about Frum's article is that the play "I Am Rachel Corrie" is running at the Royal Court Theatre. The point about it being a "royal" theatre, is that it exists in a country ostensibly under the sovereignty of a royal family.

The Queen or at least her Parliament has the authority to speak out against the Theatre's choice of production. Not necessarily to stop it; but at least to say that they disapprove of the play and to request that the title "royal" be dropped from its venue.

...Or, maybe, to add a qualifier. There are plenty of other royal courts in the world that would approve of this Theatre's production.
