Blood Brothers: Play Version


Did you hear the story of the Johnston twins? As like each other as two new pins…. if not, it’s likely you have at least heard of the story, as Willy Russell’s “Blood Brothers” is nearly 30 years old.

MAMT in association with Experience Theatre presents the original non-musical play version of the hugely successful musical. Set in Liverpool in post-war 1960s Britain, it is the heart-warming tale of twin brothers who are separated at birth when their mother decides to have one of them adopted and what happens when they are brought together again through friendship. However, their familial relationship is concealed by their guardians who strive to keep them apart because of superstitious beliefs. As they grow older, leading ostensibly separate lives, they begin to gravitate back towards each other, until they eventually become friends. They are caught up in a vicious love triangle with Mickey’s childhood sweetheart Linda. Mickey’s depression pushes Linda into the arms of the conciliatory Eddie. A desperate Mickey takes drastic action against his fraternal twin which will ultimately expose their true identities.
