THERE was no doubt about the killer’s identity when Keighley Playhouse pulled the plug on its Agatha Christie whodunnit this month.

Playhouse leaders cited government advice on coronavirus for their decision to stop performances of the classic drama Witness For The Prosecution.

Playhouse spokesman Barbara Boothroyd said: “We did put on one performance on the Monday to a limited audience but the decision was taken afterwards to cancel the rest of the run.

“The committee also decided to cancel our next production of Lucky Sods due to go out in May.”

VE Day concerts planned by Haworth West Lane Baptist Amateurs and Sutton’s Green Hut Theatre Company for the end of April were cancelled.

The executive committee at Bingley Little Theatre decided to close their theatre at Bingley Arts Centre until the end of their current play season, including the upcoming Be My Baby.

Earlier this month, Keighley Youth Theatre (KYDZ) decided to postpone its planned major production Jolly Hockey Sticks from July this year to the same time next year.

Performances of concerts and mini-plays are instead planned for this year’s July and October show dates. The group has stopped regular Thursday night rehearsals during the coronavirus crisis.
