A play being staged at a theater in Birmingham, England has closed after a violent demonstration by members of the Sikh faith. The production included references to sexual abuse and murder in a Sikh temple, and its author, who is a Sikh herself, has gone into hiding after receiving death threats. NPR's Anthony Kuhn reports.
