The Moira Monologues on tour

My one-woman show, The Moira Monologues, went down really well in its run at the Citizen’s Theatre in February. I also acted in Gregroy Burke’s play, Battery Farm, at the Oran Mor in Glasgow and the Traverse in Edinburgh last month. So now I am all geared up for touring Moira. Here are some things the press had to say about it:

‘A roaring theatrical success. This is brilliant stuff, an exhilaratingly fresh take on the whole business of class and culture in Scotland. It’s also so funny that some in the audience were literally shouting with laughter; over a character and a performance that will surely have a long continuing life, after this week’s brief run in Glasgow.’ – Joyce Macmillan **** The Scotsman

‘By playing it fearlessly straight, Bissett makes for the most believable of neighborhood gossips’. – Neil Cooper **** The Herald

“One of the undoubted highlights of the Aye Write! Festival.” – The Skinny

And here are the dates, commencing this Saturday…

IRVINE, Harbour Arts Centre – April 10th

NR GLASGOW, Eastwood Theatre – May 7th

ULLAPOOL, Book Festival – May 8th

BATHGATE, Regal Theatre Bathgate – June 11th

DUNFERMLINE, Carnegie Hall – June 30th

EDINBURGH FRINGE, National Library of Scotland – August 10-21st (not 14/15th)

ST ANDREWS, The Byre Theatre, 24th – 28th August

BANCHORY, Woodend Barn – September 1st

ABERDEEN, The Lemon Tree – September 17th

Also, my new play, Turbo Folk, will begin a week’s run at Oran Mor in Glasgow, each lunchtime from Mon 26th April.

Death of a Ladies’ Man will also be released in paperback next month. It will be promoted in the 3/2s in Waterstones and in travel outlets of WH Smith’s.

More updates soon, folks. x

    Saw a snippet of Moira at the Book Festival which made me buy tickets for the full event at The Fringe. A definite highlight for both festivals for me. You’re brilliant. Well done with the Turbo People nomination, I genuinely hope you win.
