SKIPTON Little Theatre will present The Killing of Sister George from April 16 to April 20.

A comedy by Frank Marcus, it tells the story of June Buckridge, an actor portraying the beloved character Sister George, a bike-riding District Nurse in the fictional village of Applehurst in a 1960s BBC radio soap opera.

When BBC manager and agony aunt Mrs Mercy Croft pays a visit, June and her flatmate Alice 'Childie' McNaught find their lives turned upside down. As June seeks guidance from her quirky clairvoyant friend Madam Xenia, whose predictions have a knack for coming true, the play unfolds with unexpected tenderness and emotional depth woven throughout the comedy.

The 1960s-era play contains adult themes and language that reflect the attitudes of its time.Evening and matinee performances, Booking online:; telephone 0752 714 1176 or email:
