For the play reading in April, we have chosen Blood Brothers by Willy Russell.
Blood Brothers is a musical which debuted on London’s West End in 1983. It won the Laurence Olivier Award for Best New Musical, and it was one of the longest running musicals on the West End, finally closing in 2012.
The musical focuses on separated twin brothers, who lead starkly different lives — one opulently and the other in poverty. There is a tragic love triangle between them with disastrous consequences. The musical developed a cult following due to its relatable characters.
Now commonly regarded as one of the all time great British musicals, Blood Brothers has touched the hearts and minds of a generation of theatregoers in dealing with two of the most pressing social issues of our time — inequality and unemployment. The story of Blood Brothers takes us to Liverpool, around the time of the coal miner strikes, beginning with the birth of twin brothers.
