Blood Brothers is a musical with book, lyrics, and music by Willy Russell. The story revolves around 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. Blood Brothers won the Laurence Olivier Award for Best New Musical and went on to a year-long national tour before returning for a revival in the West End. The Lower School Production of the play has a cast of seventy pupils on stage and behind the scenes drawn from Years 7, 8 and 9.
