Meet the hardest woman in Falkirk…twice!

The ‘most charismatic character to appear on a Scottish stage in a decade’ (*****The Scotsman) Moira Bell is the rip-roaring, chain-smoking, nae-messin’ heroine from Alan Bissett’s original and classic ‘one-woman show’ The Moira Monologues, now touring for the first time as a double-bill with its award-winning sequel, More Moira Monologues.

Moira’s a single mum and a cleaner, who can’t wait to light a fag and tell her bestie Babs all about the teacher she fancies, cleaning posh folks’ hooses, her thoughts on Brexit, and, of course, how she protects her darlin’ dug, Pepe, from Diesel the rottweiler. No-one ever forgets Moira!


“This is brilliant stuff, an exhilaratingly fresh take on the whole business of class and culture in Scotland. It’s also so funny that some in the audience were literally shouting with laughter.” – 4**** The Scotsman

“Moira Bell is a legend. A hilarious, but subtly smart work that takes society slowly apart” – 4**** – The Skinny

“Bissett writes with eagle-eyed vim and not a word is wasted.” – 4**** The Independent

“A funny, feisty, fiery 60 minutes that’s utterly convincing.” 4****– TV Bomb


"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
