Blood Brothers by Willy Russell
#Hashtag Theatre Company presents Blood Brothers the play directed by Gary Power, starring Denise Quinn, Rachael Cody, Bridget Nolan, Jamie Murphy, Pat Grant, Ray Collins & Tobie Hickey.
Blood Brothers is, at first, a heart-warming story of Mickey and Edward, two brothers separated at birth, brought together again through friendship. However, their relationship is concealed by their guardians who strive to keep them apart because of superstitious beliefs. Despite relocating, their lives continue to intertwine. Edward goes on to study at Oxford whilst Mickey is forced into a life of crime through unemployment. As adults, they are caught up in a vicious love triangle with Mickey’s childhood sweetheart Linda. Mickey’s imprisonment and subsequent depression pushes Linda into the arms of the conciliatory Edward. A desperate Mickey takes drastic action against his fraternal twin which will ultimately expose their true identities.
