A CONTROVERSIAL landmark play is set to take to the stage in Doncaster this week.

The Killing Of Sister George, which premiered in the West End in 1964, will be staged at the Little Theatre from Thursday until Saturday.

The play, which Frank Marcus intended to be a farce, was considered to be a ground-breaking and serious study of lesbianism and the film version of the story was given an X-rating when it was released in the United States.

The production is the first in the theatre’s series of classic plays showcasing the fifties and sixties. At the time, The Killing of Sister George was considered a daring exploration of a lesbian relationship between the play’s two key characters.

Tickets for the show are available from the box office priced at £10 and £7.
