In criminal law, incitement is the encouragement of another person to commit a crime. Depending on the jurisdiction, some or all types of incitement may be illegal. (From Wikipedia).

TBF it's obvious not everyone knows that it's a play. I'm one of them :grin:

Even "a joke" may be viewed as incitement. A man who taught tricks to his girlfriend's pet dog as "a joke" was convicted in Scotland recently for incitement.

From a bit of reading it is a play about how the world would react if she was assassinated rather than a call to arms to do the deed. Not saying that makes it more or less acceptable and it is easy to get into freedom of speech vs. incitement but I think the context needs to be understood.

Ok, Sadly that one seems to have landed a bit awkwardly for most. My apologies to those that may have taken offence, I have clearly misread the ambience here.
