“Lucien Bourjeily openly confronted the Lebanese censorship bureau by writing a play Would It Pass Or Not? about censorship in Lebanon. The play was banned in Lebanon, exposing the farcical sensitivity of the censors and forcing them to justify their actions in public. The play was produced by March – an anti-censorship NGO of which Bourjeily is an advisory board member.”

Meanwhile Lucien Bourjeily has been nominated by the Index on Censorship for the 2014 Freedom of Expression Awards held on the 20th of March in London.
