Spring 2015 Season Now On Sale

We're turning 70 this year - I know, right? We're wearing it well. To mark the occasion, we've got a spring season that celebrates some legends of Scottish theatre, as well as new writing and shows by some of the most exciting theatre companies working the UK today. 




All shows are now on sale, so have a browse through our Spring 2015 season and get planning the birthday celebrations. We've got a fantastic season pass on offer too when you purchase tickets for all three Citizens Theatre shows: The Slab Boys, Fever Dream: Southside and Into That Darkness and save £3 off each ticket. Add Filter's Macbeth and Absence of War and save a total of £15! That's a lot of interval ice creams....

John Byrne, writer and original designer and David Hayman, original director, reunite to stage a new production of this twentieth-century classic set in the tough, rebellious, working-class culture of 1950s industrial Scotland.
