She takes a job as a housekeeper to make ends meet but it's not long before her world crashes around her when she discovers she is pregnant again.
The musical focuses on the captivating and moving story of the twins who are separated at birth but are reunited in a dramatic climax.
It's a storyline which has scooped four awards for Best Musical in London and seven Tony Award nominations in Broadway.
And as someone who has seen the production in the capital many years ago, one of 10,000 performances in the West End, I can safely say you are in for a treat.
Willy Russell is one of the country's leading dramatists, with credits that include Educating Rita and Shirley Valentine.
Maureen Nolan, who stars as Mrs Johnstone in the play, says: "For me, there's no better musical. It makes you think about your life, makes you laugh and cry and it's got great songs."
The show runs until Saturday. Tickets cost from £20. Call 01242 572573.
