Iraq play stirs up conflict for Wilton drama students
Wilton High School drama students say their efforts to come up with a play dealing with tough issues has landed them in a drama of their own.
The students created the play ?Voices of Conflict,? which uses actual words from American troops in Iraq. They say all of the stories in the play were real stories from soldiers. However, drama students say the principal shut down the play after someone complained.
Students say they tried to put both sides of the hot-button issue in the play. They add the head of the English department edited the performance. However, some students and parents say the play is no way to honor or respect soldiers.
The superintendent says the school will put on a new version of the play.
