Connection Theatre’s production of Willy Russell’s classic Blood Brothers (play version) opens for two nights on 11th November in Portrush Town Hall.

Set in Liverpool, against the backdrop of poverty and increasing unemployment, it tells the story of twin brothers Mickey and Eddie who having been separated at birth find their lives inextricably linked, while both of them remain unaware of their family connections.

This is a powerful and moving story which weaves a complex and tragic tale, peppered with moments of joyfulness and unhappiness.

All proceeds from this production have kindly been nominated to Causeway Women’s Aid, Coleraine.

Tickets are available from Causeway Women’s Aid, 23 Abbey Street, Tel 02870356573 and there are a limited number available on the night at the door.

This brilliantly moving play will have a lasting impression and is not to be missed.
