PERFORMANCE artist Iestyn Edwards is back at the Lantern Theatre with his flamboyant show, My Tutu’s Gone AWOL.

It is a musical revue taking in songs by Richard Rodgers, Shermann and Shermann, Cole Porter, Ivor Novello, among others, as the outrageous performer recounts his time on Combined Services Entertainment tours through Iraq and Afghanistan.

He will also morph into his legendary Russian Prima Ballerina Madame Galina - part panto dame, part clown and part stand up.

The son of a Country and Western singer, Terry Edwards, and a psychic mother who got banned from theatres around the country, Edwards has had his own series on Channel 4, filmed with RubyWax for BBC 3, with Ballet Boyz for Sky Arts, and appeared in the Olivier Award winning West End show, C’est Barbican, but ranks as his highest achievent hearing Joanna Lumley

choose his recording of Tom Bowling as one of her eight records for Desert Island Discs.

My Tutu’s Gone AWOL is at the Lantern Theatre from tonight (March 1) to Saturday.
