Poland's Culture Minister, Piotr Glinski, Has Called For A New Play Based On Nobel Prize-winning Writer Elfriede Jelinek's Book Princess Dramas: Death And The Maiden I-v To Be Shut Down Following Protests From Catholics.
More than 10 people were arrested outside the Polski Theatre in Wroclaw on Saturday (21Nov15) for refusing to let ticket holders into the building for the play's premiere.
The religious activists insist the project is pornographic and members of the new conservative pro-Catholic government appear to agree.
The protesters said they objected to the presence of porn stars onstage and sexually explicit scenes.
Glinski's opponents have said his attempt to stop the performance amounts to a violation of freedom of speech.
Theatre director Krzysztof Mieszkowski is planning to file an official motion in parliament calling on Glinski to be removed from his post. Mieszkowski also claims protesters threw eggs at his mother's home.
