The original Willy Russell play tells of twin brothers and what happens when their mother decides to have one of them adopted. Their contrasting upbringing – one in a middle-class home and one in a working -class home- and the hand fate deals them is fast-moving, perceptive and ultimately tragic. The twins are portrayed by adult actors throughout the play, from aged seven to adult.
More well-known as a musical, this original play version has a darker, compelling narrative.
"I just finished watching Blood Brothers at the Catford Broadway studio theatre. Well done all. What a moving performance. I laughed, I listened and I was moved throughout the whole performance. If you don't have tickets just turn up one night and see it. Raw acting at its best."
"Very impressed with Artform's Blood Brothers this afternoon. Although I knew what was coming I was still shocked by the outcome because I had become so endeared to the characters due to excellent performances. Well done everyone!"
"Yet another spectacular production from Artform! They just keep them coming! Really enjoyed the show tonight - big fan of the musical and loved the play. You were all exceptional!! Can't wait for the next one!"
"A big well done to all involved in Artform's production of Blood Brothers. Great performances from all the cast & technically seamless. Laughed & also got a bit emotional."
