Friday April 20th
Unable to do a straight book talk, for whatever reason, Iestyn is bringing a Vaudeville version of his best-selling memoir My Tutu Went AWOL ( pub: Unbound) to BIG LIT. Classical ballet, opera, tallish stories. We follow him in his tutu touring for Combined Services Entertainment across the warzones of Iraq and Afghanistan. Dressed down for drying his ballet tights on the anti-blast wall, for demanding his custard creams back from the President of Estonia to return to their rightful camels, hoiked offstage by Stacks, a fuming Royal Marine Commando, and dumped on the turret of the Naughty Tank.
‘Fascinating, moving, completely hilarious.’ Miranda Hart. ‘Achingly funny! Daily Mail.
