Meet Arthur – an odd old man who lives all alone in his attic.  He never ventures into the outside world; instead he spends all of his time with his friend the moon.  

But now, Arthur needs your help!

The clouds have covered the sky and the moon is nowhere to be seen, and without it Arthur’s life suddenly feels empty.

According to Arthur... tells the story of an isolated old man as he re-engages with the outside world, and with the exciting, adventurous life he once led - all brought to life through PaddleBoat’s imaginative blend of puppetry, play, music, mime and storytelling.
