DUPed - Edinburgh Fringe 2019

Sweet Grassmarket - Grassmarket 3

The 2018 Scotsman Fringe First Award-winning show returns for just two performances. Written and performed by John McCann and directed by Erasmus McKenna. The Reverend Dr Ian Richard 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 interviews with campaigners, journalists and activists from across the North of Ireland, DUPed explores the history and continuing impact of Ian Paisley’s DUP on those who oppose religious and social conservatism.
