Alan Bissett: Moira In Lockdown (Plus Live DJ Set)

Oran Mor

Sunday 2nd April 2023

Show time: 8:00pm

In this third and final hilarious installment of Alan Bissett's hit Moira Monologues trilogy, Falkirk’s hardest woman, Moira Bell, faces her toughest challenge yet: surviving a pandemic with only vodka, fags and her BFF Babs on Zoom. Take that, Bear Grylls!

Journey through the highs and lows of lockdown with writer-performer Alan Bissett returning as Moira, as she lusts after Joe Wickes, rages at Dominic Cummings and grows her own weed "might as well, seeing as the f**kin world’s ending, eh Babs?".

PLUS! Live DJ set from Alan after the show!

‘She’s ‘the most charismatic character to appear on a Scottish stage in a decade’ (Scotsman) but this time she canny even leave the hoose!

‘Moira’s back-to-the-wall willingness to take on all-comers is the constant powerhouse of Alan Bissett’s humour.’ ***** Broadway Baby

‘Heart-stoppingly funny, and heart-warming, Alan Bissett has created nothing less than an hour of storytelling perfection.’ ***** The Quintessential Review

‘Hugely entertaining and strangely moving.’ **** Scotsman

‘Bissett’s skill as a writer-performer with Moira has always been to take a potentially one-note character and add new dimensions to her, without ever intruding upon his vicious one-liners. For his 2022 show, he excels at making Moira’s lived experience universal while keeping her edge.’ **** List

‘Keenly felt, dryly observed and hysterically funny’ **** British Theatre Guide

Written and performed by Alan Bissett

Directed by Sacha Kyle
