Fionna Hewitt-Twamley stars Myra McLaughlin in one-woman show MYRA’s STORY directed by Brian Foster presented as part of the Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2019.
‘Myra, a middle-aged, homeless Dublin street drinker, is feisty, funny and foul-mouthed. Desperate for her first drink of the day, she begs from the passing city centre throngs. Between begging she re-lives her backstory. Playing all the characters, and acting out all the incredible events that have led her to this pitiful existence, Myra takes us on a swirling, searing, at times hilarious, but ultimately heart-breaking journey. Winner of Best Tragedy Award, United Solo Festival, New York, 2016.
Dates: 1st -25th August
