Robb performed in two of Richard Norton-Taylor Tricycle Tribunal Plays: The Colour of Justice (The dramatised version of the Sir William Macpherson inquiry into the murder of Stephen Lawrence, his family's search for justice and endemic racism in British police forces) and Half the Picture (A distillation of the Scott Inquiry into Arms-to-Iraq. It was the first play to be performed in the Palace of Westminster); both were directed by Nicolas Kent and performed at the Tricycle Theatre. The productions were broadcast by the BBC.
