In Israel actors have prohibited smoking on the stage even the play requires this
Supreme Court of Israel has cancelled decision of inferior court that actors can smoke on the stage during the performance if play requires this.

Claimants have proudly declared that such decision is taken for the first time in world practice and have underlined that this day is a Holiday for everyone who cares of their health.
