Abstract

Kirrie 400's community play “Common Threids” celebrates the 400th anniversary of Kirriemuir's historical Townhouse building. The Townhouse building is now home to the Gateway to the Glen's Museum, and has become an important focal point for all those interested in the unique and exciting history of this seemingly sleepy “Red Toon”. The inspiration for celebrating the 400th anniversary of Kirriemuir's Townhouse came from the community. Among the parties who put their heads together to come up with ideas for suitable events were the local historian, Sandra Affleck, the museum curator, Fiona Guest, the community council chairman, Roland Proctor, the Saltire Society and the Friends of the Museum. The talents of local professional writers were tapped and their prolific imaginations resulted in “Common Threids” – a series of playlets loosely based on Kirrie characters and events from the past 400 years.
