Art crashes into authority in play about Ai Weiwei

In this photo taken Thursday, April 11, 2013, playwright Howard Brenton, author of a play about Chinese contemporary artist Ai Weiwei called '#aiww: The Arrest of Ai Weiwei' stands by a poster for his play at Hampstead Theatre in London. Brenton, 70, is one of Britain's best-known playwrights, whose work has ranged from provocative history play "The Romans in Britain" - the focus of a famous, failed prosecution for obscenity in 1982 - to journalism satire "Pravda," co-written with David Hare.
