The run for the show had been due to start on Tuesday, March 31, with further performances lined up from Thursday, April 2 to Saturday, April 4.

But the society confirmed that the show has been postponed until a later date.

A spokesman for the production said: “We are considering what we can do about staging it later in the year, possibly in our traditional November slot.”

She added that it would not be possible to make any firm plans until the threat of the Covid-19 outbreak had passed and the country was in a position to return to normal.
