His research has been exhaustive. He’s eaten numerous bar lunches in Behind the Wall. He’s searched in the archives at Callendar House for ancient scribbles by Shire fans. He’s interviewed drunken punters in the queue for City, asking: what does it mean to come from Falkirk? What does it mean to come from anywhere? Now he’s ready to present his findings.
In June this year, Alan Bissett and Falkirk musician Adam Stafford toured pubs, community centres and town halls in the Falkirk area with What the F**kirk? a comedy play about what it means to come from Fawkurt. The play, directed by Sacha Kyle was a huge success and sold out in Larbert, Falkirk and Hallglen.
