The day before the presidential election Leonard Cohen finally fell silent.

Arthur and the gifted and glamourous Smithereens revisit the acclaimed show they brought to Bath in 2015 to say so long to Leonard - with a couple of new Leonard songs, laughs and reflections.

The show reflects on despair, decline and dementia yet succeeds in being hilarious, joyous and life-affirming. Smith, playwright, grumpy old man, 'Radio 4's bit of rough' and stand-up comic, is enhanced by the fabulous Smithereens, a trio of unbeatably melodious and glamourous singer/musicians to produce an evening you will never forget.

"Here I am in Edinburgh to find the best in up-and-coming comedy talent. But in all my trawling so far, the best work I've seen is not only by a 58-year-old Fringe legend, it's also the follow-up to a show he first did here 13 years ago..." - The Times
