Myra Mc Laughlin is a homeless Dublin street drinker. Foul-mouthed and feisty, she is also funny and self-deprecating. It’s a bitterly cold, December morning. Desperate for her first drink of the day, she begs from, insults, even dances for the passing throngs on Grafton Street. As she re-creates her life story, playing all the characters and acting out all the events that have led her to this pitiful existence, we see working class Dublin life and death at its funniest, rawest and cruellest. Myra’s Story is packed full of energy, humour and drama. We all know a Myra Mc Laughlin. She is our sister, our brother, our parent, our friend. She is us … there but for the grace of god.
