THE Stevenage Lytton Players open their Spring drama season with Blood Brothers.

This play - not the musical version - is fast-moving, thought-provoking and funny, but ultimately ends in tragedy.

It tells the tale of twins, Mickey and Edward, who are born into a large working-class family and what happens when one of them is put up for adoption. It focuses on the differences in their upbringings, their relationships with each other and their families.

The twins are played by Tom Crooke, a pupil at Knights Templar School in Baldock, and Martin Beardmore, who is a former pupil and a trainee teacher at the school.

The play takes place at 8pm from April 16 to 19, at The Lytton Theatre, on Vardon Road in Stevenage.

Tickets, at £8 or £6 for concessions, are available from the box office on 0870 777 7619.
