Smile

Author(s): Philip Differ
Company: Dundee Rep Ensemble

Football visionary, tactical genius, greetin’-faced moan—who was the real Jim McLean?

Jim McLean might never be called one of Scottish football’s best loved characters, but he will always be described as one of the most respected. While boss of Dundee United, McLean did something that no-one thought possible, and turned a provincial football club into a genuine European force, though not without cost.

Smile, a piece based on the life of this legendary football icon, reveals the complexities and contradictions, the highs and lows, and the triumphs and regrets of this totally unique individual.
