• Edinburgh Fringe

Written and performed by Scotsman Fringe First Winner, John McCann (SPOILING, Traverse Theatre, 2014) and directed by Erasmus Mackenna. The Reverend Dr. Ian Kyle Paisley was once a young, firebrand, fundamentalist preacher from the heart of Ulsters 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 various campaigners, activists and communities across the North of Ireland, DUPed explores the legacy and continuing impact of Paisley and his Democratic Unionist Party on those who oppose extreme religious and social conservatism.
