The only thing I can think of is that you must have (mis)heard this sentence!
"I got so caught up in that play.........." makes sense because it's a way of saying you became so involved in it that you lost track of time.
You can be "cut up" if you are upset............
"I was really cut up when my girlfriend finished with me".
........but I don't think that's what your sentence is saying.
