Northern Ireland: Council reverses Bible play ban

A council in County Antrim has reversed a decision to cancel a play that some councillors had said was blasphemous.


Newtownabbey Borough Council’s artistic board last week cancelled the Reduced Shakespeare Company’s ‘The Bible: The Complete Word of God (Abridged)’.

The comic play was booked to run at the council’s Theatre at the Mill from Wednesday, 29 January, for two nights.

But on Monday the artistic board decided to put the play back on and the full council ratified that decision.

The play will now go ahead as scheduled.
