Keighley Playhouse has announced that, as a result of the current coronavirus emergency, it will remain closed until at least the end of the current calendar year. Social distancing requirements, which it is anticipated will continue for some considerable time to come, mean that it is impracticable to present the normal programme of productions. 2019/20 season ticket holders will have their current seats reserved until such time as normal service is resumed and they will remain valid for the next three productions, whenever they occur. As circumstances develop the Playhouse will keep patrons advised through the website www.keighleyplayhouse.co.uk and via the Playhouse Facebook page.

Arsenic and Old Lace


Mortimer Brewster is living a happy life: he has a steady job at a prominent New York newspaper, he’s just become engaged, and he gets to visit his sweet spinster aunts to announce the engagement. Mortimer always knew that his family had a bit of a mad gene, but his world is turned upside down when he realizes that his dear aunts have been poisoning lonely old men for years! When Mortimer’s maniacal brother, Jonathan returns on the night that the aunts were planning to bury the newest victim, Mortimer must rally to help his aunts and protect his fiancé -- all while trying to keep his own sanity.. Performance begins at 7.30pm
