Written and performed by two-time Scotsman Fringe First Winner John McCann (Spoiling, Traverse Theatre 2014, DUPed 2018) and directed by Erasmus McKenna.

The Reverend Dr. Ian Kyle Paisley was once a young, firebrand, fundamentalist preacher from the heart of Ulster’s Bible Belt. He toured towns and villages booming populist, sectarian politics in increasingly incendiary times; a bogeyman or bellwether for generations to come.

Based upon extensive interviews with campaigners, activists and journalists DUPed explores the legacy and continuing impact of Paisley and his Democratic Unionist Party on those who oppose extreme religious and social conservatism.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for DUPed are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
