ON SATURDAY, April 28, the (then) Carnoustie youth of the 1960s will be celebrating the 50th anniversary of the once controversial passion play ‘A Man Dies’ in the Station Hotel, Carnoustie.

There will be ‘60s music and dancing, a display of pictures from the times, as well as a supper of sandwiches and stovies.

The reunion is not limited to cast members, and any other friends of the time are welcome.

The organising committee, headed by Rob Pirie, will be joined by some 40 other cast members, friends, and their partners from the same era.

Also attending will be a very special guest for the evening, former schoolteacher Helen Adam who taught many of the cast members, and can still tell funny tales of happenings within the old Carnoustie School. She celebrates her 80th birthday in April, and says she would love to meet and catch up with all her old school pupils and other acquaintances of the time.

Tickets, priced £15 each, are still available from Rob Pirie, ‘phone 01382 530290, e-mail pirie56@btinternet.com or simply mail your cheque to Rob Pirie, 56 Craigie Hill, Drumoig, St Andrews, Fife KY16 0NA.
