The self-declared Siren from South Yorkshire stands trial seeking redemption from you, her adoring audience. She’ll tell you herself, ‘the devil made me do it!’ Do what? We wanted to know more.
Hi Myra, tell me about your show.
DuBois Entendre is an hour with ME, and what more do you want? I’ll be regaling the audience with song, stories and dance in the vain hope that they might be mildly amused for an hour.
What does Edinburgh mean to you?
Fiscal irresponsibility. It’s also a hot-bed of new creative talent, apparently.
Who inspires you and why?
Me, daily, to get through the day everyday. How I manage to do it I’ve no idea, but I seem to get myself through.
Describe your best or worst experiences on stage.
I was escorted off the premises at Bristol Pride. I could tell you more about this, but it’s in the show so come along and watch the show to find out more…
Describe your best or worst review.
I’d rather not if it’s all the same to you. I’d have to fish them out, I never read my reviews. I’m sure it’s all glowing praise anyway so why bother?
If you weren’t a performer, what would you be?
A stay at home wife. Not mother, I’ve got the maternal instincts of Rose West. But ‘stay at home wife’ I could manage.
What was the last book you read?
Rotherham Wives, by me, Myra DuBois. Which features in the show.
Myra, what’s 2 + 2?
It is 4, Myra. You know this.
Imagine that the BBC have asked you to produce a primetime show. What would it be and who else would be involved?
I dunno some bloody singing competition with cakes and Daleks or whatever, they all seem popular at the moment.
