Take part in Blood Brothers (Play)

Join us at Nottingham Playhouse this summer as we work together to create a performance of Blood Brothers. For two weeks you will be working with Nottingham Playhouse professionals to bring this non‑musical play version of the hugely successful script to life. At the end of the two weeks we will be presenting a performance of our piece in the Neville Studio. No previous experience needed, so if you love drama, come and experience a summer to remember.


A struggling mother is forced to separate her twin sons at birth. Although raised only streets apart, the class division between them sets their lives on very different paths. A chance meeting ensues an unlikely friendship between the pair but what will happen if they discover their true connection?
