WARSAW, Poland (AP) — Authorities have arrested 12 people who tried to block the entrance to a theater performance in Poland they deemed pornographic.

The case highlights the cultural conflict that is already brewing between secular Polish society and a new conservative pro-Catholic government that took power last Monday.

Scuffles broke out late Saturday in Wroclaw when members of a Catholic organization tried to stop theater-goers from seeing "Death and the Maiden." The Polski Theater in Wroclaw says on its website that the play explores the relationship between torturer and victim and is based on the "Princess Dramas: Death and the Maiden I-V" by the Nobel Prize-winning Austrian writer Elfriede Jelinek.)
