Sorry you are too late, this event has been and gone!
Meet middle-aged homeless alcoholic woman, Myra McLaughlin, living rough on the streets of Dublin. Hilarious, harrowing, heartbreaking. You'll laugh with her, cry with her, but won't forget her!
About Myra’s Story
Living rough on the streets of Dublin, Myra McLaughlin is a foul-mouthed, feisty, street drinker. She is also immensely funny and self-deprecating. And takes no prisoners in giving us an hilarious, moving, and ultimately heart-breaking account of her fall from grace from fresh-faced teenage bride to the pitiful condition we find her in today.
Along her rollercoaster journey we experience Dublin working class life and death at its funniest and cruellest. And we get to meet an amazing assortment of characters who have coloured Myra’s life. Including habitual scrounger Tina the Tap … heavy smoker Big Bridie and her husband Jimmy the Tadpole … innocent little Norris the Gnome … and cross-eyed Matilda and her partner, Christy, Dublin’s hairiest man.
“Will wring laughter and tears from even the stoniest of hearts. Simply magnificent.” ***** British Theatre Guide.
Myra’s Story has been the smash hit of both the 2019 and 2021 Edinburgh fringes. Playing to packed houses, standing ovations and five-star reviews, it has been described by many as the best piece of theatre they have ever seen.
“Myra’s Story deserves to be the talk of the fringe.” *****Broadway Baby.
You’ll split your sides laughing with Myra. You’ll break your heart crying with Myra. What you will never do … is forget her.
