When “she” first sauntered on stage at the Edinburgh Fringe, the critic Joyce McMillan called Moira the most unique character to appear on a Scottish stage for a decade.

Her alter ego, and creator/performer, is the playwright Alan Bissett, who invented and inhabited the “hardest woman in Falkirk” for what he called The Moira Monologues.

The “woman” who never knowingly deleted an expletive, and had something of an extended love affair with vodka and cigarettes ,was a huge success, so More Moira Monologues came along and packed them in as well,

Alan thought “she” and he were finished until the pandemic brought us all a lockdown and he wondered how sassy Moira would cope in relative isolation, save for Zooming her bestie, Babs. So he wrote a hilarious follow-up which he titled Moira in Lockdown.

Since he staged it during last August’s Fringe, with only around 1,000 other competing shows, it was remarkable that he sold out every night at the Netherbow.

Now Moira – who Alan brought to the peninsula several years ago is coming to Cove Burgh Hall for an 8pm show this Saturday, February 18.

The doors open at 7.30pm – and the audience is advised not to bring the weans!
