WILLY Russell’s smash hit musical is set to return to Nottingham’s Theatre Royal this month.

Blood Brothers tells the captivating and moving story of twin boys separated at birth, only to be reunited, by a twist of fate and a mother’s haunting secret.

When Mrs Johnstone, a young mother, is deserted by her husband and left to her own devices to provide for seven hungry children she takes a job as a housekeeper in order to make ends meet.

It is not long before her fragile world crashes around her when she discovers herself to be pregnant yet again with twins.

Blood Brothers is on at the Theatre Royal from 16th to 20th April and tickets are £35 - £16 plus concessions.
