No ‘Sex,’ please: Ohio courthouse bans poster

NEW PHILADELPHIA, Ohio — A poster for a play with “Sex” in the title has been banned from a northeast Ohio courthouse.

Tuscarawas County commissioners this week ordered the removal of posters advertising a local production of the play “No Sex, Please, We’re British.”

Commissioners got a complaint about “Sex” in the title of the play, about a couple dealing with a flood of pornography going into their apartment. Commissioner Chris Abbuhl told The (Dover-New Philadelphia) Times-Reporter newspaper that the person who complained thought the poster was inappropriate for a public building.

Non-profit groups have historically been allowed to put up posters in the courthouse, including the Little Theatre hosting the play.

Play director Lee Elliott describes the poster as “bright and shiny with a pair of women’s legs,” but not dirty.
