She’s back, folks. After the success of the first two episodes of my ‘one-woman show’, The Moira Monologues (2009) its sequel, More Moira Monologues (2017), Falkirk’s hardest woman returns in a brand-new play coming to the Edinburgh Fringe: Moira in Lockdown!
The show runs from 3rd-23rd August (except 11th, 15th, 17th, 19th, 22nd) at the Scottish Storytelling Centre on the Royal Mile at 6.30pm (1hr). You can book tickets here.
In this new installment, Moira faces her toughest challenge yet: surviving a pandemic with only vodka, fags and her BFF Babs on Zoom. Take that, Bear Grylls!
Journey through the highs and lows of lockdown with myself, writer-performer Alan Bissett, returning as Moira as she lusts after Joe Wickes, rages at Cummings and grows her own weed (might as well, seeing as the f**kin world’s ending, eh Babs?). She’s ‘the most charismatic character to appear on a Scottish stage in a decade’ ★★★★★ (The Scotsman) and this time she canny even leave the hoose! Directed by Sacha Kyle.
