The story of a kid called Tom who never had a speaking part in a school play but gets to play Billy Elliott in the West End and is now the incumbent Spider-Man. A fluke with no plans or strategy in place whatsoever. Against the carefully laid plans of his hapless dad – a somewhat famous UK comedian who sets his sights on Hollywood and misses badly.
Written with pride and bemusement by a dad who enjoys seeing his son’s career soar and remains sufficiently delusional to think that his soaring days are ahead. (They’re not).
