Alan Bissett in (the original) ‘Moira Monologues’

Alan Bissett brings his hilarious original play and huge Fringe Hit back to Falkirk as part of the Falkirk Storytelling Festival 2018.

“I first wrote and performed my ‘one-woman show’ The Moira Monologues in 2009, my comedy about Falkirk’s hardest woman – and since then, against all our expectations, it proved to be my most popular show, and Moira my most enduring character. She’s strutted her stuff on stages across the length and breadth of Scotland and beyond.  The show has enjoyed sell-out runs at Edinburgh Fringe, which brought back to me how much I love the character and how well audiences respond to her.”

Join us on home turf with Moira Bell – single mum, cleaner, hardest woman in Falkirk. Time for Moira to light up a fag and tell her BFF Babs the score. ‘This is brilliant stuff’’ (Scotsman). ‘It’s a sometimes scary pleasure to spend an evening in Moira’s company’ (Independent). ‘Moira’s a legend. A hilarious but subtly smart work that takes society slowly apart’ **** (Skinny). Directed by Sacha Kyle.
