Myra's Story

Age recommendation and guidance: Not Available

Brian Foster’s Myra’s Story comes to the London’s West End this autumn.

Following three hit Edinburgh Fringe runs, the show runs at the Trafalgar Theatre with tickets on sale now here.

Myra’s Story will play Tuesday Evenings and Wednesday Matinees from 19 September – 18 October 2023.

The production will share the venue with Jersey Boys which continues in its regular schedule.

Middle-aged, homeless alcoholic Myra McLaughlin lives rough on the streets of Dublin. While begging from passers-by, Myra recreates her rollercoaster backstory. Playing all the characters, acting out all the hilarious/tragic/heartbreaking 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 Myra.

Fíonna Hewitt-Twamley stars in the title role.

Writer Brian Foster said: “Some years back I was down in Dublin on business. As I crossed Ha’penny Bridge I spotted, ahead of me, a woman sat on a piece of cardboard, begging. I hurried past her, pretending to talk into my mobile. Back home in Derry I couldn’t get that tragic lady’s face out of my head. And the sense of guilt I felt for ignoring her made me sit down and begin writing. A month later I had completed the first draft of the play.

He added: “Although set in Dublin, the story could take place in any town, in any city, worldwide, the twin evils of homelessness and addiction being universal. Audiences can relate to the damaged character they see up on stage. Myra is their sister, their brother, their mother their father. Myra is any one of them … any one of us … there but for the grace.”

Myra’s Story will play at London’s Trafalgar Theatre from 19 September 2023 currently booking through to 18 October 2023.
