Arthur is an OAP, hiding out from the world in his grotty high-rise. He'd move - if it weren't for his missing teenage son. Today is Michael's 18th birthday - will he finally come home? But the person Arthur finally lets in turns out to be someone else entirely. This boy is seeking refuge from The Fights - the raging riots sparked years ago by a notorious computer game.

An intense but strikingly delicate insight into human nature - with a crisp realism engaging us every moment in the round, and the very different characters bounce off each other with precision and ease - Arthur's World is a powerful piece of new writing and is thought-provokingly clever in the questions it raises. Incredibly engaging - it's so well-balanced in drive, tone and character that we are on the edge of our seat all the way through. A hidden little gem at the top of the Bush. * A Younger Theatre *
