Happy Birthday Jude! {King Lear at the Lowry}

Originally this was a theatre trip for me, Al and Megs -
but she dumped us in favour of a book signing with Carrie Hope Fletcher
at Manchester Central Library

so we turned the day into a birthday trip for Judianne.

The Northern Broadsides production of King Lear was paired back and beautifully clear -
I've never understood the relationships so well.
Barrie Rutter as Lear - just so very human.
Loved it {though not the cripplingly uncomfortable high seats in the Quays gallery}

Afterwards we ate at Bella Italia -
then walked over to the Blue Peter garden at Media City for a spot of nostalgia.
