By PaddleBoat Theatre Company

A delightful combination of the mundane and the extraordinary, According to Arthur… is a feast for the imaginations of both young and old alike. It tells the story of an eccentric old man who has shut himself away from the world in his attic with only the moon for companionship. But when the moon disappears one night, Arthur must take courage and reconnect with the world and all of its wonders – the result is an inspirational and heart-warming tale which the company brings to life through a dazzling mix of puppetry, music and an infectious sense of play. Incorporating stories and styles from all across the world, According to Arthur… will ignite the inquiring minds of the young and rekindle the dormant imaginations of the old.

“…utterly charming, unexpectedly affecting…” (Fringe Guru **** )
