Set in Willy Russell's native Liverpool, this international smash hit musical tells the captivating tale of twin boys, separated at birth only to be reunited by a twist of fate and a mother's haunting secret.
When Mrs Johnstone, a young mother, is deserted by her husband and left to her own devices to provide for seven hungry children she takes a job as a housekeeper in order to make ends meet.
It is not long before her brittle world crashes around her when she discovers herself to be pregnant yet again – this time with twins! In a moment of weakness and desperation, she enters a secret pact with her employer which leads inexorably to the show's shattering climax.
The memorable score includes A Bright New Day, Marilyn Monroe and the emotionally charged hit Tell Me It's Not True.
All casting is subject to change - please check with the Box Office when booking.
'You've never seen a musical like Blood Brothers. Every night of the week audiences stand and cheer. See it for yourself and understand why' (New York Times)
