“Tell me it’s not true, say it’s just a story…” so begins one of the most popular British musicals ever, the show that thrilled audiences in the West End for 24 years – over 10,000 performances. A noirish tale of twin brothers separated at birth, raised on opposite sides of the tracks and doomed to follow their destiny… a spirited satire of working-class life… a haunting folk opera filled with love and desire… This is Blood Brothers.

The action takes place in Liverpool and Skelmersdale, UK in the 1960s and 1970s.

Characters To Be Cast

Mickey Johnstone, one actor plays ages 7, 15-18, early 20s. Mickey has a rough and tumble childhood but at his core he is honest and sincere. He descends from being an open and honest boy to an embittered young man, beaten down by losing his job, spending time in prison and drug addiction.

Linda, one actress plays ages 7, 15-18, early 20s. She begins the story as kind, confident and tomboyish young girl, but morphs into an object of desire for both of the twin brothers. She only has eyes for Mickey, telling him she loves him long before their first kiss. But after years of poverty and Mickey’s imprisonment she turns to Edward for comfort and they begin an affair.

Sammy Johnstone, one actor plays ages 9, 18, mid 20s. A juvenile delinquent and notorious trouble-maker, as a teenager he tries to rob a bus. The adult Sammy turns to a life of crime and persuades the unemployed, down-and-out Mickey to help him. Attempted robbery ends with a murder, sending Sammy and Mickey to jail.

Mr. Lyons/Managing Director, 35 – 60. A wealthy businessman, he is too oblivious and selfinvolved to realize that Edward is not his child. As Mrs. Lyon plunges into madness, he becomes increasingly alarmed, but at heart remains paternalistic and preoccupied. As the managing director he fires hundreds of employees without any remorse or regret.

ENSEMBLE, actors and actresses of assorted ages combine to play various roles.
