Playing to packed houses, standing ovations and five-star reviews, MYRA’S STORY has been described by many as the finest, funniest, most heart-breaking piece of theatre they have ever seen. The story of middle-aged homeless alcoholic Myra McLaughlin, living rough on the streets of Dublin. As she begs from passers-by at Ha’Penny Bridge she recreates her incredible 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 her.
“Astonishing and sublime! Quite simply the greatest modern Irish play I have ever seen.”
5***** L. PARKER, FACEBOOK.
“Just come out of this wonderful play. Completely immersed. Times you could hear a pin drop. Loud laughter in other parts. Been attending theatre for 30 years and adore it. But never seen anything to compare on an emotional scale to this.”
5***** LYNDSEY STODDART, FACEBOOK.
“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.”
5***** SCOTTISH DAILY MAIL.
“Will wring laughter and tears from even the stoniest of hearts.”
5***** BRITISH THEATRE GUIDE.
“Never has a live performance left me speechless. 90 minutes of sheer brilliance. Laughter and tears a lot of so remember to take a box of tissues.”
