Running time to be confirmed.
Comedian, presenter, actor, writer and true original Arthur Smith brings his show, which sold out at the Edinburgh Festival, to Wallingford. SYD is a touching and funny tribute to Arthur Smith’s father. Syd Smith fought at El Alamein, became a P.O.W., and ended the war in the notorious Colditz Castle in Germany. In the 1950s PC Syd patrolled London’s South Bank and met a gallery of characters, whom he tried his best not to arrest.
Arthur tells this 20th century story with laughter, music (from Ray Davies and others), reflections and a hilarious photo.
Appearing alongside Arthur is Kirsty Newton, a multi-talented musician, singer and songwriter, comedy performer and “human Jukebox”.
