Award winning author and actor Alan Cochrane dies

Today, The Scotsman intimated the death of Alan Cochrane in Edinburgh on 7th October 2012.  Read the obituary here.

Edinburgh People's Theatre opened its Fringe season this summer with one of Cochrane's plays, Ne'er the Twain - fittingly, since it was premiered there in 1971 :-

" ... traditional Scot’s comedy – Ne'er the Twain is an hilarious Scot’s comedy by the award winning author, Alan Cochrane. We take you back to a time when Leith had its very own trams and Edinburgh for a Neighbour! It’s October 1919 - do you join St Cuthbert's or Leith Provie when the boundary runs through your house?"
