She’s back! Straight-talking single mum Moira Bell returns in a new installment of Alan Bissett’s much-loved one-woman show. Moira’s a gran now, but still telling hilarious home-truths about dating, her estranged sister, cleaning posh folk’s hooses, the return of her ex Billy, and Brexit.

“A near-perfect series of new monologues, both howlingly funny and unnervingly sharp and poetic.” – 5***** The Scotsman

“Such a riot my ears popped a couple of times from the row behind me shouting with laughter.” 5***** The National

“Welcome back, Moira. We missed you.” – 5***** Broadway Baby

“Great hilarity, simple truths and some profound moments too: it’s no wonder Moira has such a loyal following.” – 4**** The List
