We return this summer with our unique production of Willy Russell's classic play "Blood Brothers". This is the story of twin brothers separated at birth. Their mother, Mrs Johnstone, is forced to make a decision that will affect all of their lives as she gives up one of the twins to Mrs Lyons, a woman who has longed to be a mother and takes advantage of Mrs Johnstone's good nature to get a child of her own. We follow the twins' lives as they make their way through the sixties, seventies and eighties at opposite ends of the social spectrum. When they meet, by chance, as young boys they make a promise to each other to always be friends, to be one another's blood brother until they reach the fateful tragic conclusion of the play. Through the twin boys, and their families, we see the great differences in the social scale during tough times which can resonate strongly with a modern audience and the times we live in now. The play's themes of fate and fortune, with both its darker and more comical moments, make this original play version of the hit musical one not to miss.
