A court in Thailand sentenced two theater activists to two and a half years in prison on Monday on charges of insulting the country's monarchy.

The activists produced a play called "The Wolf Bride" about a fictional monarch and his adviser. It was performed at Bangkok's Thammasat University in 2013 to mark the anniversary of a 1973 anti-dictatorship uprising led by students.
