Newtownabbey council reverses decision to cancel Bible play

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 play will now go ahead as scheduled on Wednesday and Thursday.
