The fictional history of 1980s Airdrie’s mysterious, post-punk legends it is a gloriously hallucinatory journey, back to the hopes and dreams of early adulthood, performed by Paul Higgins (The Thick of It, Slow Horses) with music by Stephen McRobbie (The Pastels) and Gavin Thomson.

★★★★ “Memories of fictional indie heroes burn brightly” – The Guardian

★★★★ “A psychoactive hymn to the power of saying yes to experience.” – The Herald

The best theatre I saw (in Edinburgh) was This Is Memorial Device. I loved David Keenan’s novel so much I was worried about seeing it, but it was brilliantly adapted in a way that that felt totally special, in that moment, in that place, on that night. – Stewart Lee
