The play celebrates the club and will be performed by fans, for fans.

McCredie said he is happy to host the teaching workshop  in his home city.

“I’m absolutely delighted to be back at Perth Theatre where my love affair with theatre began, working with local people to create a piece celebrating the city, the community and the mighty Perth Saints.,” he said.

“It will be a taster of how much fun being part of a show celebrating Perth, the community and the best wee team in the country will be.”
