Meet the hardest woman in Falkirk! The ‘most charismatic character to appear on a Scottish stage in a decade’ (The Scotsman), Moira Bell is the rip-roaring, chain-smoking, nae-messin’ heroine from Alan Bissett’s original and classic ‘one-woman show,  The Moira Monologues, now touring for the first time as a double-bill with its award-winning sequel.

Moira’s a single mum and a cleaner, who can’t wait to light a fag and tell her bestie Babs all about the teacher she fancies, cleaning posh folks’ hooses, her thoughts on Brexit, and, of course, how she protects her darlin’ dug, Pepe, from Diesel the rottweiler. You’ll laugh til you cry, which is why no-one ever forgets Moira!
