Join writer-performer Bissett as Moira: cleaner, single mum and the hardest woman in Falkirk, as she protects her wee Pepe from a neighbour’s dug, seduces a teacher in the school where she works, and goes to a Shakespeare play on the world’s most awkward date. 'The most charismatic character to appear on a Scottish stage in a decade? **** (Scotsman). 'Bissett writes with eagle-eyed vim. Not a word is wasted.' **** (Independent). 'Moira is a legend. A hilarious, subtly smart work that takes society slowly apart.' **** (Skinny). Directed by Sacha Kyle.
