Censored!

Censored!
Theatre censorship in the UK was abolished fifty years ago, and London's Victoria & Albert Museum is marking the anniversary with Censored! Stage, Screen, Society at 50, a small exhibition devoted to UK censorship. The exhibition covers theatre, film, music, and media censorship, with exhibits including the 3rd June 1976 issue of Gay News (containing James Kirkup's poem The Love That Dares to Speak Its Name) and the 'Schoolkids' issue of Oz (which was the subject of a long-running obscenity trial in 1971). Censored! opened on 10th July, and runs until 27th January next year.
