Blood Brothers archiveMusical melodrama set in Liverpool about twins separated at birth and the effects on their personalities as they grow up of 'nature' and 'nurture'. A poor family, already with kids, is blessed with twins, but they can't cope. The mother cleans at a 'posh' house where they are desperate to have kids but can't and a deal is struck which no-one must know about. Despite the efforts of the new family the boys paths cross time and time again as they grow and one becomes 'bad' while the other is 'good'. Eventually they clash with tragic consequences. The musical is un-usual in having a "narrator" who helps to move the plot along. Running time 2 hours 45 mins including interval
Performers Maureen Nolan (Mrs Johnstone), Warwick Evans (narrator), Tracy Spencer (Mrs Lyons), Mark Hutchinson (Eddie), Tim Churchill (Mr Lyons), Danny Taylor (Sammy), Tori Hargreaves (Donna Marie/Miss Jones), Graeme Kinniburgh (Bus Conductor), Ben Rowlands (Perkins), Samuel Hargreaves (Neighbour).

c reay (29Nov14): Went to see blood brothers for the first time but will not be the last brilliant all the way through
USER (25Oct14): Just been to bham! Supberd I sobbed! Loved it!
Ann Finch (15Oct14): Ann Finch (14th October 2014) Really enjoyed the show but agree with the above re music. Also thought the cast were miming at times.
Mike Horsfall (10Sep14): Stunning musical, but accompaniment much too heavy on the base for a small space like Clwyd Theatr.
