“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.
The award-winning playwright describes the “dizzying” time at the Liverpool Everyman in the 1970s and explains why Blood Brothers is Shakespearean in scope, not being bound by unities of time and place.
