About Myra’s Story


Sensational, record breaking Irish play MYRA'S STORY is one not to miss.

The story of middle-aged homeless alcoholic woman, Myra McLaughlin, living rough on the streets of Dublin. Hilarious, harrowing, heartbreaking. You'll laugh with Myra. You'll cry with Myra. What you'll never do ... is forget her.

Written by Brian Foster. Starring award nominated Dublin actor Fíonna Hewitt-Twamley.

To date, 166 performances have brought 166 rousing standing ovations from a combined audience of over 50,000 people in Ireland, USA and Canada.


“Myra’s Story is the most life-changing show I have ever seen.”

“Without doubt the finest piece of theatre it has been my privilege to see. Simply incredible.”

“Bring a big box of tissues with you to wipe away your tears of laughter and heartbreak. Best show I’ve seen in 35 years of theatre.”

MYRA’S STORY plays 22 performances in the gorgeous Assembly Rooms Ballroom, August 1-25.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Myra’s Story are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
