An Israeli Theatre Company has been effectively banned from the Edinburgh Festival after its venue cancelled following pressure from pro-Palestinian campaigners. Members of the Palestine Solidarity Campaign held a protest outside the Cow Barn in Underbelly Bristo Square, while more than 50 of Scotland's most notable cultural figures signed a letter demanding that the show be banned.
