This punchy, 75 minute production of Trainspotting Live recaptures the passion and the controversy of the famous novel, then globally successful film, and repackages it into an immersive production.

The audience are literally part of the show – and yes, that includes the notorious “Worst Toilet in Scotland” scene.

Against a dynamic soundscape of 80s dance music, the stories of a group of friends living through the Edinburgh heroin scene – Renton, Tommy, Sick Boy, Begbie and Alison – are brought to life with humour, poetry and provocatively graphic scenes.

Choose life. This no-holds-barred immersive, in-yer-face theatre production left Irvine Welsh feeling “blown away” – for avid fans this is a must, and if you’ve never read the book or seen the film: this is your ticket to a ride you won’t soon forget.
