Lancing Repertory Players will be offering the original play version of Willy Russell’s Blood Brothers as their annual October production.

Blood Brothers is now most famous as a musical but Russell originally wrote it as a play and it was first performed in conjunction with Merseyside Young People’s Theatre in 1981.

He went on to develop the play into the musical which has toured the globe ever since and won three Laurence Olivier awards along the way.

It tells the captivating and moving tale of twins who, separated at birth, grow up on opposite sides of the tracks, only to meet again with fateful consequences

Lancing Rep will be offering four performances in Lancing Parish Hall, South Street, Lancing. Performances start at 8pm from Wednesday, October 23 to Saturday, October 26.

Awaiting walkers (who bring their own mug) is free hot chocolate and coffee, before returning to Bury Village Hall for the apple pressing between 12-2pm.

At the Village Hall there will be children’s games, burger, hot dogs and apple crumble (in return for a small cash donation) followed by a fruit tree planting in the village as part of the Thousand Trees initiative.
