Willy Russell’s Blood Brothers is set in the heart of Liverpool. Twin brothers Mickey and Edward Johnstone are separated at birth as their mother cannot afford to keep them both. Raised only streets apart, the boys’ lives take two very different paths. Following a chance meeting, the pair form an unlikely friendship. What will happen if they ever find out the secret of their shared history?

After two sell-out performances at Chequer Mead Theatre, East Grinstead, Rising Stars Adult Theatre Company are back by popular demand to bring the power and grit of Willy Russell’s piece as it was originally written, in the form of a 90 minute play. Using minimalistic sets, the message of the anguish and struggle of the twins mother is delivered through the incredibly thought provoking text, under the superb direction of Angela Scullin.

Although a must see for any theatregoer, secondary schools can take advantage of this curriculum piece, being brought to life on stage. Many themes run through the play and members of the cast will be happy to be available for a Q & A session after the show, for any visiting school parties.

Blood Brothers (play version) is presented by special arrangement with Samuel French, Ltd.

Performance: Friday November 06, 7.30pm
