Additional Info

George 'Geordie' Carson is a former cabaret singer and Frank Sinatra impersonator at the delapidated Sands Hotel in Whitley Bay. Now in his 70s, he is suffering from dementia with Lewy bodies, a condition marked by hallucinations that cause him to believe he really is Sinatra.
His family and friends rally round to support him as best they can while adaptng to their own newly-alloted roles as members of 'Frank's' entourage.

This funny, sad and sensitive play - featuring many of the classic Sinatra songs - tackles a very contemporary issue.

Reviews

'Geordie Sinatra is a great night in the theatre, mingling humour, pathos and positivity in equal measure.' - Peter Lathan, British Theatre Guide.
