Blood Brothers

You are here:

On Wednesday 1st November nine students and three members of staff went to the Alhambra Theatre in Bradford to watch a production of  Willy Russell's Blood Brothers as part of their GCSE English Literature studies.

The story is a contemporary nature versus nurture plot, revolving around fraternal twins Mickey and Eddie, who were separated at birth, one subsequently being raised in a wealthy family, the other in a poor family. The different environments take the twins to opposite ends of the social spectrum, one becoming a councillor, and the other unemployed and in prison. They both fall in love with the same girl, causing a rift in their friendship and leading to the tragic death of both brothers.
