Leading Lights of British Theatre Accuse European Drama Prize of Modern-Day McCarthyism
British playwright Caryl Churchill

British playwright Caryl Churchill was awarded the European Drama Prize in April 2022 only for the award to be rescinded in October in retaliation for Churchill’s continued support of the Palestinian Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions (BDS) movement. More than 170 actors, writers, and producers have signed a petition in support of Churchill to accuse the jury of the prize of targeting artists who are critical of Israel’s violence.
