Dundonald Liberation Army to make bid for respectability

The DLA will be back in action next year
David Roy

FOLLOWING the recent sell-out run of Lockdown DLA at The MAC, the Dundonald Liberation Army will next appear on the Matcham Auditorium Stage at Belfast's Grand Opera House in June 2023.

Written by by Stephen G LargeProduced by Soda Bread Theatre, Vote DLA will see the hapless freedom fighters return for another outrageous comedy starring Matthew McElhinney and Matthew Forsythe.

Davy 'The Venezuelan' Taylor (McElhinney), reputed top man of the Dundonald Liberation Army, realises his dream of an independent republic of Dundonald cannot be achieved without a political strategy. And so, The People's Independence Party (PIP) is born.

However, DLA second in command John 'Horse' McCracken (Forsythe) becomes increasingly resentful of Davy's lavish new lifestyle as a public servant, with a seemingly bottomless expenses account. And so, Horse rejects the DLA's ceasefire and splinters the movement.
