As Edinburgh Fringe First Winners Rubber Ear Productions make preparations for a tour of The Devil Wears Primark in Britain, the writer, director and actor Kathleen Ruddy has squeezed in a tour of Cyprus with her new work, Spare Ribs which will be performed in Peyia, Paphos and Pissouri this October.

The success of The Devil Wears Primark, which toured island-wide in September 2012 has sparked a great deal of interest from theatres in the UK keen to get the story of the matriarchal, controlling Cypriot mother-in-law Athenoulla onto their stages.
Just as Sex, Chips and Ouzo, (after three tours of Cyprus, participation in the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Glasgow’s Mayfest, The Glasgow Comedy Festival and extensive UK touring) warranted a re-write for the big screen. Kathleen will be joined on stage with Mark McDonnell and John Ritchie, both of whom toured with Rubber Ear in June last year with the popular Death Of A Playboy.
