The Moira Monologues…return!

Tickets are NOW ONSALE for the sensational comeback of my classic ‘one-woman show’ THE MOIRA MONOLOGUES at the Edinburgh Fringe. Here’s an interview in The National about the play. You’ll honestly freakin love it. x


Moira Bell – single mum, cleaner, hardest woman in Falkirk, and the alter ego of writer/performer Alan Bissett – is back at the Fringe for a limited run after six years’ absence. Don’t miss her!

‘It’s a – sometimes scary – pleasure to spend an evening in Moira’s company.’ **** (Independent)

‘One of the most charismatic characters to appear in Scottish theatre this decade. This is brilliant stuff… the audience were literally shouting with laughter.’ **** (Joyce McMillan, The Scotsman)

“Moira Bell is a legend.” ****The Skinny

‘Fiercely funny… rivals any stand-up the Fringe has to offer.’ **** (

Directed by Sacha Kyle.
