Following a sell-out tour in autumn 2015, the international smash hit musical Blood Brothers is currently touring theatres across the UK again and will visit the Theatre Royal Nottingham from Monday February 15 to Saturday February 20.

Lyn Paul makes a welcome return to the iconic role of Mrs Johnstone.

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.

The memorable score includes A Bright New Day, Marilyn Monroe and the emotionally charged hit Tell Me It’s Not True.

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 brittle world crashes around her when she discovers herself to be pregnant yet again – this time with twins.

In a moment of weakness and desperation, she enters a secret pact with her employer which leads inexorably to the show’s shattering climax.

A sensational cast, incredible show stopping music, remarkable staging and five star performances make Blood Brothers an enthralling night of entertainment.

Show times are, evenings 7.30pm, Wednesday matinee 2pm, Saturday matinee 2.30pm. Tickets are £39.50 - £15 plus concessions. Call the box office on 0115 989 5555 or visit www.trch.co.uk.
