Do your genes fix your future? Do your children have any hope?
Performed in your own home by Daniel Bye and his five-month-old son, Arthur is a startling confrontation with the inescapability of what makes you you. Combining astonishing insights from the cutting-edge science of epigenetics, with hilarious and harrowing storytelling, this show will make you look again at everything you thought you knew.
