Blood Brothers

This play, which was written for Merseyside Yount People's Theatre Company, is centred on twins who are inextricably linked by birth yet separated by background and upbringing. Eddie and Mickey meet and ironically sweat to become blood brothers. Although their liking for each other prevails at first their contrasting environments force them apart. Tragedy occurs because their upbringing prevents a proper understanding of each other. The episodic nature of the play allows Willy Russell to focus on the degree to which success in life is determined not by innate qualities, but by privileges, or disandvantages, of upbringing. This pervasive inequality is dramatized in the contrasting fortunes of the blood brothers.
