Blood Brothers
    By Willy Russell

    19:30, Thu 18th – Sat 20th October 2007 at Sawston Youth Centre
    Michaelmas Week 2

    Fresh from the success of their acclaimed production of ‘The Witches of Eastwick’ earlier this summer, the Festival Players are back on stage this autumn with their next presentation: Willy Russell’s ‘Blood Brothers’. Set in Liverpool, ‘Blood Brothers’ is the funny yet tragic tale of a working-class mother who, forced by poverty and desperation, surrenders one of her new-born twins to the childless woman she cleans for. The boys grow up streets apart, unaware that they are brothers but becoming firm friends. As they enter adulthood, one prospers while the other falls on hard times. But ultimately, there is a price to pay for separating the twins…

    With its compelling plot and witty but poignant dialogue, ‘Blood Brothers’ is an entertaining and thought-provoking evening’s entertainment for any audience. It is playing at Sawston Youth Centre, Cambridgeshire, at 7.30pm on October 18th-20th. Tickets, priced £7 and £5, are available from Simon Merrington (01223 363386;
