About Arthur Smith
After Arthur Smith Sings Leonard Cohen ("A delight of a show" ★★★★ – List), in which he spoke and sang of his mother, Arthur is now turning to his father and is once again accompanied by the Smithereens.
In the 1950s, PC Syd Smith did night duty on the South Bank and met a gallery of fellow Londoners whom he tried his best not to arrest. Before then he had been a P.O.W., ending the war in the notorious Colditz castle in Germany.
In Syd, Arthur quotes words his father wrote and adds his own to consider the story of one man’s 20th century and what it tells us about the 21st.
