Blood brothers

Hi, I have a Blood Brothers essay tomorrow in English and I could someone please read through me introduction as it is always my weakest part.

The question that we were given was something like, how did the upbringing and class difference effect Eddie and Mickey and their future.

The play ‘blood brothers’ written by Willy Russel follows the story of twin brothers, Eddie and Mickey, where one was given away at birth while the other was kept. Eddie was given to an upper class family which has an abundance of money and uses money to get their way, which is seen throughout the play. Mickey stays with his lower class biological mother, where we see the lack of money they have and the struggles they face. He presents money this way to show how class difference and money can affect someone's life and how easily someone's life may change because of money.
