An Iestyn Edwards Double Bill - T070401001

Championed by Joanna Lumley, who chose one of his songs for her Desert Island Discs, Iestyn has had his own Channel 4 series, appeared on Sky Arts - and is a serious amount of fun. Outrageous, hilarious and also quite a hit with our British troops (and a regular performer in warzones such as Iraq and Afghanistan) .

My Tutu's been AWOL! - T1208796876

"A rare and perfect synthesis of art and larkiness... unnerving skill in pirouettes...the audience howled with laughter, stamped and cheered!" - Libby Purves, The Times As heard by Her Majesty, and on Desert Island Discs, Midweek, Woman’s Hour and Loose Ends. A unique account of tours through outlying military bases in Iraq and Afghanistan. Find out how Iestyn dodged rockets and some serious square-bashing from RSM ’Tina’ Turner, why a Royal Marines Commando ordered him to sit on the naughty tank and how he won a coveted ’Hoofing’ award performing as Madame Galina in Camp Bastion. With works by Novello, Sherman, Schubert and Sullivan, this part-revue, part-dramatic monologue follows Iestyn through Iraq and Afghanistan in the company of Her Majesty’s Finest, with asides about his parents spiking his Ribena, Welsh Mair hijacking the 206 to get him to Builth Wells on time and sharing a dressing-room with a yodelling strip-a-gram giraffe. Then we meet Madame Galina, Forces’ Sweetheart herself

Songs by Cole Porter, Franz Schubert and Sherman and Sherman are rudely interrupted by tales of Iestyn's parents drugging his Ribena, his ongoing terror at a yodeling strip-a-gram giraffe and his exploits in Iraq and Afghanistan. Age suitability: 13+ years
