Blood Brothers description

Experience the tragic tale of twins split up at birth

Written by Willy Russell and originally a school play created for Merseyside Young People’s Theatre in 1981, Blood Brothers reveals the grim story of twin boys and their attempt to triumph against adversity. The memorable and poignant score has the entire theatre in tears night after night. Celebrated widely as one of the best musicals of all time, Blood Brothers won three Olivier awards, for the best new musical, best actress in a musical and best actor in a musical. More than twenty years thrilling West End audiences and three decades in total on stage make this one of the best loved musical drama productions on the London theatre scene.

Blood Brothers – The story

Blood Brothers tells the inspirational and extremely moving story of twins separated at birth in the early 1960s, growing up with very different backgrounds. It’s a truly tragic tale of one woman’s desperate decision, based on terrible financial hardship, to give up one of her twin sons and her subsequent attempts to keep them away from one another. When the two boys eventually uncover the secret and discover their close family ties, their lives become linked with tragic consequences.

The show’s actors cover a time period of twenty years throughout the show, from childhood to teenage and into adulthood. You’ll marvel at their acting skills as they change the way they speak and move to portray the characters convincingly at different stages in their lives. Amazing!

Blood Brothers song list

This is a powerful story and a classic British drama along the lines of Educating Rita and Billy Elliot, including a long list of evocative melodies. Anyone who loves great drama will adore Blood Brothers, a heart-rending and tragic tale often described as ‘the musical for people who hate musicals’.

You’ll find yourself singing in your seat to beautiful tunes like Marilyn Monroe, My Child, Easy Terms and Shoes Upon The Table. Kids' Game, Bright New Day and Long Sunday Afternoon drive the story along, with My Friend, The Devil's Got Your Number and That Guy scoring a hit with tearful audiences every night. And I'm Not Saying A Word, Miss Jones, Light Romance and Madman bring the show to its dramatic, desperately sad crescendo.

WOW A MUST SEE FANTASTIC SHOW

The show is a must to see and experience. We have see quite a few shows in London and they are all superb and this one is just as outstanding. The cast and storyline were excellent and at the end of the show, the whole theatre gave a standing ovation and many including myself, mum and even my husband shed a tear or 2. It is not really a show for children as there is a bit of swearing in it which does depict the storyline and is required to tell the story. Another fantastic weekend in London for a show and I would recommend highly anyone who has not seen Blood Brothers to go and see it. Wow wow wow.
