Blood Brothers, by award-winning playwright Willy Russell (Educating Rita, Shirley Valentine), takes the classic story of twins separated at birth and transforms it into a moving musical tragedy.
Mrs. Johnstone has been deserted by her husband, who has left her with seven children to raise. When she learns that she is expecting twins, she is close to despair. Mrs. Johnstone cleans the house of Mrs. Lyons, who is rich and childless. When Mrs. Lyons hears that Mrs. Johnstone is to have twins, she begs one of her twins from her at birth.
The two boys grow up separately, never knowing the truth about their birth. In time they become firm friends—blood brothers—and even fall in love with the same girl. Mrs. Lyons tries to keep the boys apart, but fate brings them together again.
This is a stage reading, the actor’s will have scripts in hand.
