Myra’s Story 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.


Living homeless on the streets of Dublin, middle-aged Myra McLaughlin is a foul-mouthed, feisty, street drinker. She is also immensely funny and self-deprecating. And takes no prisoners in giving us an hilarious, shocking, and ultimately heart-breaking re-enactment of her fall from grace, from fresh-faced teen bride with all to live for, to the pitiful condition we find her in today.
Along the rollercoaster journey she takes us on, we experience Dublin working class life and death at its maddest, funniest and cruellest. And we meet an amazing bunch of Dublin characters who have coloured Myra’s 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.
You’ll split your sides laughing with Myra. You’ll break your heart crying with Myra. What you’ll never do … is forget her.


“Will wring laughter and tears from even the stoniest of hearts.” ***** British Theatre Guide.
“Never has a live performance left me speechless. 90 mins of sheer brilliance. Laughter and tears a lot of so remember to take a box of tissues. Would 100% recommend.” ***** Grace Gallacher.
“Myra’s Story deserves to be the talk of the fringe.” ***** Broadway Baby.
“Was there on Thursday to see this play in Edinburgh. Travelled over 100 miles. My second time seeing it and was still amazed and blown away by the sheer brilliance of it. Absolute knock out performance that lives with you for days and weeks after!” ***** Mark Roy.
“Saw this at the fringe. It made me weep and laugh simultaneously. The writing is superb.” ***** Sue Jameson.
“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.”
***** Lyndsey Stoddart.
