A controversial stage production deemed “offensive” to Christians has been cancelled after objections from a number of councillors.

The Bible: The Complete Word of God (Abridged) was due to be staged in the council-owned Theatre at the Mill in Newtownabbey next week.

A video trailer for the Reduced Shakespeare Company’s comedy describes the production as being “better than the book”. It goes on to say: “In the style of Monty Python’s Life of Brian, it’s juvenile but not blasphemous.”
