Arthur's World

Helena Thompson

PaperBack (29 Jan 2015)

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
