Derry playwright Brian Foster’s award winning, record breaking MYRA’S STORY is set in Dublin and has been the smash hit of both the 2019 and 2021 Edinburgh Fringes. Playing to packed houses, rousing standing ovations and five-star reviews, it has been described by many as the finest piece of theatre they have ever seen.

“Five stars are not enough to do it justice! Hosannas are what Hewitt-Twamley and Derry playwright Brian Foster deserve for this soul-searing drama about those we pass by every day.” * SCOTTISH DAILY MAIL.

Living rough on the streets of Dublin, middle-aged Myra McLaughlin is a foul-mouthed, feisty, street drinker. She is also immensely funny and self-deprecating. Playing a whole range of characters, she gives an hilarious, moving, and ultimately heart-breaking re-enactment of her fall from grace from fresh-faced teen bride with all to live for, to her pitiful condition of today.

Along the rollercoaster of emotions journey Myra takes us on, we experience Dublin working class life and death at its maddest, funniest and cruelest. And we meet an amazing bunch of Dublin characters who have coloured her life. Including Bob Dylan fan Tommy … habitual scrounger Tina the Tap … heavy smoker Big Bridie and her husband Jimmy the Tadpole … innocent little Norris the Gnome … and cross-eyed Matilda and her partner, Christy, Dublin’s hairiest man.

“Will wring laughter and tears from even the stoniest of hearts. Simply magnificent.” * BRITISH THEATRE GUIDE.

You’ll split your sides laughing with Myra. You’ll break your heart crying with Myra. What you will never do … is forget her.
