Blood Brothers

Theatre Royal Bath
Blood Brothers - (centre) Lyn Paul as Mrs Johnstone


Tickets: £23 - £44.50 with concessions available (Booking fee applies)


The international smash hit Blood Brothers opens its new 2018 tour at the Theatre Royal. Written by award-winning playwright Willy Russell (Educating Rita, Shirley Valentine), this iconic musical has triumphed across the globe, scooping up no fewer than four awards for Best Musical in London and receiving seven Tony Award nominations on Broadway.

Critically acclaimed actress and singer Lyn Paul (The New Seekers, Cabaret, Taboo, Footloose - The Musical) returns to the seminal role of Mrs Johnstone, following her first performance back in 1997. Hailed as ‘The definitive Mrs Johnstone’ (Manchester Evening News), Lyn has since played the lead role on numerous UK tours and also starred as Mrs Johnstone in the West End in 2012.

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 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 – 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.
