From a mother’s heartbreaking decision to give up her child emerges a story so compelling that even now – nearly 30 years after Blood Brothers first opened – audiences are still moved to tears every night.
You’ll be on the edge of your seat right from the start of this tragic tale of brotherly love and friendship against the odds. And even if you’re not a musicals kind of person, you can’t fail to be moved by the powerful, gritty storyline of this classic British drama.
Blood Brothers has the lot: a mother’s agonising dilemma, twins separated at birth, a bitter love triangle and a dire prophecy.
It’s the early 1960s and money is tight. When Mrs Johnstone discovers she’s pregnant with twins, she knows she can’t keep both, so she enters into a pact with the wealthy Mrs Lyons – a decision that will echo down the years with terrible consequences for everyone.
You’ll be on tenterhooks the whole way through, willing these two boys from very different sides of the tracks to triumph against the odds.
