On Festival nights, we present a new play based on David Keenan’s novel This is Memorial Device. The fictional history of 1980s Airdrie’s mysterious, post-punk legends, Memorial Device, Keenan’s novel has a huge cult following. This stage adaptation is a glorious journey back into the hopes and dreams of early adulthood, starring Scottish actor Paul Higgins (The Thick of It, Utopia, Line of Duty).
Adapted and directed by Graham Eatough and produced in partnership with the Royal Lyceum Theatre Edinburgh, This is Memorial Device features music by Stephen McRobbie of The Pastels, contemporaries of Memorial Device.
Supported by Sir Ewan and Lady Brown
