Award winning, record breaking play set in Dublin. The smash hit of the 2019 and 2021 Edinburgh fringes. Playing to packed houses, standing ovations and five-star reviews. Has been described by many as the finest piece of theatre they have ever seen.
Homeless, middle-aged Myra McLaughlin is a foul-mouthed, feisty, Dublin street drinker. She is also immensely funny and self-deprecating as she gives an hilarious, moving, and ultimately heart-breaking re-enactment of her fall from grace from fresh- faced teen bride living in Tallaght, to her pitiful condition of today.
Along Myra’s rollercoaster journey, we experience working class life and death at its maddest, funniest and cruelest. And 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.
