The short play Dear Censor is inpired by the ideas of writers such as Lawrence Hill.
Censorship is bad for creativity, democracy and the mind itself. That's why Freedom To Read Week - which begins Sunday (February 23) and highlights why free expression, especially the political kind - is so important. This year's Freedom To Read activities include the Dear Censor event at the Gladstone on Tuesday (February 25), featuring a short play based on lectures and letters by authors including Lawrence Hill and Margaret Atwood.
