“Blood Brothers came out of the Liverpool Everyman as naturally as you could imagine.”
Willy Russell shares what he has learnt about what it takes to write a play with fascinating insight into his own life and career. He explores several of his key works in vivid detail, including Educating Rita, and gives a reading from Shirley Valentine.
