Powerful Performances in Willy Russell's Blood Brothers

You really needed to take your tissues for this year’s drama production, as in February we performed Willy Russell's celebrated classic Blood Brothers, about Mickey and Edward, twin boys separated at birth and growing up in different families.

The play shows how shows how different social backgrounds can have an impact on a person’s life, even twins, who have the same DNA. We see how the lives of Mickey and Edward and their families are intertwined, and yet worlds apart, with tragic consequences for all concerned.

With two casts over the two performances, giving more girls the opportunity to play the parts of the Johnstone and Lyons families, they were able to give full vent to their dramatic capabilities as the tragedy unfolded on stage, ending with the deaths of the two main characters.  Excellent performances were given all round!
