Alan Bissett ‘one-woman show’ The Moira Monologues - a comedy about Falkirk’s hardest woman, directed by Sacha Kyle has proved to be Alan’s most popular show, and Moira his most enduring character.
‘She’s strutted her stuff on stages across the length and breadth of Scotland and beyond’ says Alan,’ ‘which brought back to me how much I love the character and how well audiences respond to her’.
‘We are delighted to be hosting Alan’s Fringe First Winning Sequel MORE Moira monologues at BIG LIT’ says Chrys Salt, Artistic Director of BIG LIT. ‘We think Stewartry audiences will love Moira too!’
‘.... howlingly funny ....and unnervingly sharp and poetic, in its vision of where the Scottish working class might be at, in the summer of 2017’. The Scotsman
BIG LIT also brings The Stewartry theatre of a very different kind. Iestyn Edwards, is bringing a Vaudeville version of his best-selling memoir My Tutu went AWOL. ‘Classical ballet, opera, tallish stories...’ he promises. We follow him in his tutu touring for Combined Services Entertainment across the warzones of Iraq and Afghanistan. He’s even performed it on-board H.M.S. Victory at the naval supper marking the two hundredth anniversary of the Battle of Trafalgar, in the presence of HM The Queen! So if it’s good enough for her Maj, it’s certainly good enough for BIG LIT!
‘Fascinating, moving, completely hilarious! ’says Miranda Hart. ‘Achingly funny! saysDaily Mail.
‘Our brochures are disappearing as fast as we put them out’ says Chrys, ‘We are looking forward to a buzzing Gatehouse and all things BIG LITerary.
