Things We Chose to Save

“As I grew up, I wondered if there was a better way to remember the important things. And it turns out, there was.”

In ten years’ time, we discover a way to record, store and replay memories at will. Editing memories becomes a booming business, and Molly is one of its leading lights. She watches thousands of other people’s memories every day. Billie, on the other hand, has no idea what she’s getting into when she decides to sell a memory of her own.

Their worlds collide in this new production from exciting new writing/ devising company Clown Funeral. A thoughtful and funny exploration of how we remember, what we remember, and why.

Part of INCOMING Festival, a co-production between A Younger Theatre and New Diorama Theatre in association with HOME. 


Clown Funeral is an emerging theatre company based in the West Midlands. Combining devising and new writing techniques with an offbeat style, we devise darkly comic shows from unusual stimuli. Associate artists of Pegasus Theatre.
