Author Brian Foster eyes world record


Myra’s Story is an award winning one-woman play tracing a day in the life of homeless Dublin street drinker, Myra Mc Laughlin. While set in Ireland, its Derry based author, Brian Foster, emphasizes that it could just as easily be set on the streets of New York, Melbourne, Toronto or London.

In 2018, Brian is looking to set a new world record for theatre with his ground breaking play by having hundreds of performances take place across the world … all on the same night. The existing record is held by Stagecoach Theatre which, in 2008, ran 66 simultaneous performances of Glad Rags across UK, USA and Germany … raising £40,000 for charity.

So, in 2018, completely FREE performance rights to stage Myra’s Story will be issued worldwide to theatre companies (amateur and professional), individual actors, producers, directors etc. To qualify for these free performances, all participants must agree to donate a minimum of 20% net revenue from ticket sales of their production to a local charity dealing with homelessness, alcoholism or drug abuse. They must also agree to schedule one of the 3 FREE performances of the play they will each be given for Friday, 16th November 2018, when the world record attempt will take place.

If you would like to join Brian in this exciting venture, contact him now giving brief details of yourself, where you are based etc, and he will email you the script of Myra’s Story. The only exclusion zone for participation is Brian’s native Ireland, where he will be touring his own new production of the play in 2018.
