Geordie Sinatra at the Live Theatre, Newcastle
The play is running at the Live Theatre before it transfers to the Stephen Joseph Theatre in Scarborough, another of my favourite places for reasons too varied, and personal, to mention.
Geordie Sinatra is a play about an old man with Alzheimer's Disease. The disease causes him to think he's really Frank Sinatra. There's a lot more going on, as you'd expect, with his wife, daughter and drummer leading double lives, adding to the general confusion about what's real or imagined, truthful or lies.
It's an excellent play and I give it a Flaming Nora thumbs up of 4 stars out of 5.
See what the Guardian thought of it too.
