Willy Russell’s Olivier Award-winning West End musical Blood Brothers arrives at the Edinburgh Playhouse as part of a celebratory 30th anniversary UK tour. Presented by Bill Kenwright, and with direction from Bob Tomson and Kenwright, the production continues to wow audiences across the country, and across the world. Blood Brothers is the heart-breaking story of twins separated at birth, earning the 1983 Olivier Award for Best New Musical, before it embarked on a 24-year West End run at the Phoenix Theatre.
Blood Brothers is the story of twins who grow up on opposite sides of the tracks, only to meet again with tragic consequences. Mrs Johnstone, a young mother, is left to bring up her seven children on her own. Becoming a housekeeper to a wealthy couple, she discovers that she is pregnant with twins, and enters a secret, ultimately deadly, pact with her employer.
With an iconic score including “A Bright New Day”, “Marilyn Monroe” and the show-stopping “Tell Me It’s Not True”, Blood Brothers stars Lyn Paul as Mrs Johnstone, after she closed the West End run in the role. With a star-studded cast, the legendary musical plays across the UK, stopping at the Edinburgh Playhouse for a limited week-long engagement.
