Photo: SIMON WATTS By NICOLA WILLIAMS Ruth Cranwell has a per- sonal connection with the musical Blood Brothers. The Beachlands resi- dent is taking to the stage to give audiences a dose of West End theatrics. Blood Brothers is the heart-wrenching story of a working-class mother from Liverpool pressured into giving away one of her twins at birth. The twins become friends in childhood and pledge they are blood brothers, not realising they are in fact brothers. There is an underly- ing tone of superstition that if ever they found out they were twins they will both immediately die, Mrs Cranwell says. It s quite tragic, it s quite dark, but there is a lot of light humour that goes through the musical as well. Mrs Cranwell has always wanted to per- form in the musical. It holds special mean- ing to me because I was adopted -- so it s quite heartfelt, she says. Mrs Cranwell plays Donna-Marie, the eldest daughter of the lead who she is also the under- study for. It s a story with wide appeal. It s very powerful, you can see a lot of the audi- ence crying at the end, she says. A charity night this month donated $5 for every ticket sold to the Counties Manukau Mul- tiple Birth club, chosen because it related to the theme of the play. They give great sup- port to any family who is having a multiple birth. The show is on until November 20 at the Spotlight Theatre, Tav- ern Lane, Papatoetoe. Go to www.iticket. co.nz to book.
