The smash hit of the last three Edinburgh Fringes. Playing to packed houses, standing ovations and fivestar reviews, MYRA’S STORY has been described by many as the finest, funniest, most heartbreaking piece of theatre they have ever seen. The incredible story of middle-aged homeless alcoholic Myra McLaughlin, living rough on the streets of Dublin. As she begs from passers-by at her regular spot by Ha’Penny Bridge, Myra recreates her rollercoaster backstory. Playing all the characters, acting out all the hilarious/tragic/heart-breaking events in her life that have taken her to this pitiful state. You’ll laugh with Myra. You’ll cry with Myra. What you’ll never do … is forget Myra.

Brian Foster deserve for this soul-searing drama about those we pass by every day.” 5***** SCOTTISH DAILY MAIL.
