The Arrival

Arthur arrives in Spain to run an ill friends bar. Struggling with the language and culture, Arthur enlists the help of his taxi driver as he puts on his first event, with Arthur himself leading the singing on the Karaoke.

Count Arthur Strong - one time Variety Star, now sole proprietor and owner of Doncaster's Academy of Performance - is a show business legend, raconteur, and lecturer extraordinaire. He stars in a Sitcom with regular sidekick Wilfred Taylor, Master Butcher, and a host of other characters.

All false starts and nervous fumbling, badly covered up by a delicate sheen of bravado and self-assurance, and an expert in everything from the world of entertainment to the origin of the species, everyday life with Arthur is an enlightening experience.
