In Theatre for the live performance we all went to discover Blood friends on 6th February 2012. We went as a school to the evening performance that has been at the Sunderland Empire. The play was written by Willy Russell, by Liverpool in 1981. The play is around the differences in social category between a set of twins which were separated at birth. Mrs Johnstone gave up one among her twin babies to Mrs Lyons (who couldn't have got children) Mrs Johnstone is known as a suspicious female so Mrs Lyons produced her trust on the bible that in case the twins had been ever to learn they were among a pair they might die. This kind of of Corse came the case the narrator then asks is it superstition or class that killed the twins. I used to be looking forward to discovering the perform as I got already viewed it before in London and enjoyed it and I could hardly wait to find out it once again. The perform was visiting from London, uk and starred Marti Pellow as the Narrator and Maureen Nolan as Mrs Johnstone. The theatres level floor was raked and there was a raked auditorium also. Costly old theater so the stage wouldn't had been raked in order to was built but it is actually raked hence the audience can have a full look at of the level from anywhere they are lay. There was an orchestra piece below the level and the director was performing the band and the stars. We were sat just before the stage in Row W in the joints. We had a fantastic view of the stage; we had a great view and got to experience the show in a different lumination. The enjoy begins with showing the audience how the enjoy will end, with the death of the two brothers; Mickey mouse and Eddie. Mrs Johnstone is was around her two useless sons who have are placed parallel to one another in the middle of the stage covered in red blankets which could become a connotation of death then a opening track begins. The narrator begins to tell the story of so what happened to the twin babies. The narrator opens the play with the first range which instantly drew me personally into the enjoy and I was interested instantly and this individual cropped up in several scenes that were quite intimidating as I had not been expecting this to happen. The first figure to speak was your narrator which was played by simply Marti Pellow. The narrator is used to guide the audience throughout the play. In Blood Friends the narrator is very important as the narrator acts as the conscience of many of the on stage characters especially Mrs Johnstone. The narrator was valuable as it led people who were watching the performance the first time and gave additional information about the play and the action taking place. The narrator wasn't co-operating in the action of the enjoy, as the narrator served as a great outsider. The narrator motivated the decisions the moms made as he was a part of their notion. The narrator would appear onstage randomly watching the different heroes from the glass windows in the established. This was a highly effective use of amounts as it can symbolise that he was in reality something indifferent which would linger and impact different choices. As I was seated at the front end of the level I had a clear view of what action was occurring. However My spouse and i felt quite scared when the narrator came out as I pondered where he originate from; although I actually do believe this kind of added to the mood and atmosphere having been able to create upon physical appearance. The light and music usually transformed when he made an appearance and he would sing tracks. The narrator used eye-contact to make his speeches personal to the target audience, at 1 point he looked at myself and I experienced rather unpleasant as it revealed the significance and the furious tone in his voice made me feel part of the performance. Especially as the narrator performed a very asking yourself and patronising character. As the narrator wasn't affiliated with the on-stage action it absolutely was important for him and myself as a group to make a interconnection. At the end of the play the narrator stands at the front with the stage and asks us as market members performed the death of the twins occur through ‘the idea of superstition or coincidence' if he asked this kind of I began to...
