But these aren’t just any silly old sheep. This clever pair have built themselves a lovely, cosy cave in the snow and are waiting out the wild winter weather, snug in their warm, woolly jumpers.

Smile – Dundee Rep

Penned by theatre and television writer Philip Differ and directed by Sally Reid, Smile comes to Dundee Rep this spring, and features BAA’s Barrie Hunter and Chris Alexander.

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.

Runs Tue 18 February – Sat 7 March 2020
