TWO PLAYS ABOUT ISRAEL/PALESTINE Arthur Milner's plays are always smart, engaging and contemporary. Milner is a man of his times who never talks down to his audience, even as he courts and incites strong reactions. We forgive him, though because he entertains us with clever and funny characters. He seems incapable of writing a character without a sense of humour.
