Sweet Venues - DUPed


Mon 8 April
Duped_Web

Written and performed by two-time Scotsman Fringe First Winner and adopted Fifer John McCann (SPOILING Traverse Theatre 2014, DUPed Sweet Venues 2018) and directed by local rising-star Erasmus Mackenna, DUPed is an award-winning play proudly made in Dundee!

The Reverend Dr. Ian Kyle Paisley was once a young, firebrand, fundamentalist preacher from the heart of Ulster’s Bible Belt. Having founded his own breakaway church, 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 journalists, DUPed explores the legacy and continuing impact of Ian Paisley’s Democratic Unionist Party on those who oppose extreme religious and social conservatism.
