About Cuttin’ A Rug

Strutting adolescent double act Phil and Spanky have broken free of the confines of the A. F. Stobo & Co. Carpet Factory in Paisley and are off to the annual staff dance. Phil may have lost his job and been rejected by the Art School, but he can still dream of a life beyond the slab room.

John Byrne’s funny and poignant Slab Boys trilogy paints a vivid picture of the tough, rebellious, working-class culture of 1950s industrial Scotland. Following the hugely-popular production of The Slab Boys in 2015, the Citizens Theatre presents the next instalment in the era-defining trilogy in a new production directed by Caroline Paterson.

The production tours to the King’s Theatre Edinburgh from 7 - 11 March. For more information visit the King’s website.

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