WRITER PHILIP DIFFER
DIRECTOR SALLY REID

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 new piece based on the life of this legendary football icon, reveals for the first time the complexities and contradictions, the highs and lows, and the triumphs and regrets of this totally unique individual.

Penned by theatre and television writer Philip Differ (Only an Excuse?) and directed by Sally Reid, this funny, moving and surprisingly honest new play will celebrate the memories of a difficult yet inspirational man, ultimately revealing a Jim McLean you never knew:

A Jim McLean that will make you smile.
