The Moira Monologues with Alan Bissett
Whether defending her wee dog Pepe from the local rottweiler, attempting to seduce a teacher, or belting out Diana Ross for the Scotia karaoke night, Moira is hilarious, hypnotic, frightening and heart-warming company.
Based on the stories and characters Alan encountered growing up in the Hallglen area of Falkirk, where The Moira Monologues first premiered, Moira, her long-suffering pal Babs, her neighbour (Bawface), her laddies (they’re gid laddies, but they canny take their hash) and her wee dug Pepe, have left audiences all over the country weak with laughter.
“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
