Theatre: the nation’s debating chamber 6.3.2015 The Guardian -- Front Page
Of all the artforms, theatre is the one most directly addressing our politics. From King Charles III and Posh to The Vote – to be staged on election night – this is a golden moment for political plays. Charlotte Higgins explores why It is a largely male cast. Raked seating flanks a thrust stage, and from time to time people leap up from the rows of benches to shout out their lines, as if they are audience and actors both. All is loosely controlled, it seems, by a man who sits on a kind of throne. There appear to be two protagonists. They quarrel noisily with one another. The chief of these sometimes emphasises his point by removing his spectacles and brandishing them. He leans with masculine threat on a highly decorated wooden box that sits on a table.

Marseille's Muslims need their Grand Mosque – why is it still a car park? 3.3.2015 The Guardian -- Front Page
The city’s 250,000-strong Muslim community was promised its first official mosque in 2001. Then the 14 years of lawsuits, money issues and ego wars began In 2001, Marseille’s incumbent mayor, Jean-Claude Gaudin, made a bold campaign promise: the city would build a Grand Mosque for its Muslim community. The 15th arrondissement site – former home, ironically enough, to a non-halal slaughterhouse – would host the country’s biggest centre for Islamic worship, with a minaret, a religious school, a library, a restaurant and tea salon, at an estimated cost of €22m.
