Culture and Arts Minister Supports Freedom Of Expression
The Minister said: “I was disappointed to hear of the decision to cancel the production of The Bible: The complete Word of God (abridged). I know that the play has travelled extensively and been performed on the international stage for the past 20 years.
“I am saddened that audiences here will not be offered the opportunity to see the performance and judge for themselves the virtues of the show.
“I fully support the views of the Arts Council that the artist’s right to freedom of expression should always be defended and that the arts have a role in promoting discussion and allowing space for disagreement and debate.”
