Smile - Charity Q&A LIVE ON ZOOM with Dundee United Legends
Friday 14 May, 8.15pm
In association with Dundee United Supporters Foundation, join Dundee United Legends Maurice Malpas, Paul Hegarty, Davie Dodds, Hamish McAlpine and John Holt for a special Q&A event hosted by Paul Reid, following the performance of SMILE on Friday 14 May.
It’s a FREE event where you have the option to donate to Alzheimer Scotland when you book.
After critical acclaim and a sell out-live session in 2020, Rep Studios now presents a gripping new filmed version of SMILE streaming online from 16 April.
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.
