Our production of No Exit, a play written by Jean-Paul Sarte, was unfortunately shut down a few hours before our second performance. This show is read at our school in senior literature, and yet is somehow unfit for the stage despite us modifying it to make it more appropriate. After months of hard work, long nights, early mornings, spending breaks, and weekends on this show. The reason we were given for the cancellation was something along the lines of there's a lesbian character and some parents may have to explain to their child that some women love other women. That our audience doesn't approve of homosexuality, and we should be playing to our audience. I'm deeply disappointed in our community. One I once thought was accepting and kind. I'm afraid I was wrong. Please allow the show to go on, and help us put censorship of homosexual themes and the double standard towards the lgbtq+ community in Clovis Unified School District to an end.
