Playwright Speaks Out Against Sikh Protests Of Her Play

Playwright Gurpreet Kaur Bhatti says her life has been upended by the controversy surrounding the cancellation of her play last month at Birmingham Rep after Sikh protests. “My play, Behzti, has been cancelled, I’ve been physically threatened and verbally abused by people who don’t know me. My family has been harassed and I’ve had to leave my home. I have been deeply angered by the upset caused to my family and I ask people to see sense and leave them alone.”
