OK, the title of this blog post makes it sound more exciting than it actually is. But yesterday I made my first trip back to the Customs House (which was one of the first theatres I visited after my Move Back) to see their new production Bobby Robson Saved My Life.
It was such a gorgeous evening that I didn’t mind getting there early (the curse of the Metros being off meant I had to take a cab and guess the timings) so I took advantage of the free time to have a walk along the river and admire the view, and also pop into see the Amazing Space exhibition at nearby The Word.
The play itself wasn’t ground-breaking, but it was a warm and funny tribute to a much-beloved man, and the audience lapped it up. (Review here). It’s only on at the Customs House for a few days before going to Ipswich then returning to the North East for a few nights at Tyne Theatre, so if you want to see it, act fast.
