This punchy, immersive production recaptures the passion and controversy of the famous novel and globally successful film, and repackages it so the audience are literally part of the show, including the notorious “Worst Toilet in Scotland” scene.
Trainspotting is the story of Mark Renton and his friends, living through the Edinburgh heroin scene of the 80s. Harry Gibson’s original stage adaptation was instantly successful and controversial and won the Sunday Times Award for Best New Play. For their acclaimed revival, which has been seen in London, New York, and across five sell-out Edinburgh Fringe seasons, Scottish company In Your Face Theatre’s cast have created a snappy and vibrant affirmation of the power and humour of the piece.
This is a no-holds-barred immersive, in-yer-face theatre production: this is your ticket to a ride you won’t soon forget.
WARNING: This immersive production contains nudity, strong language, sex, violence, drug/needle use, and lots of mess. May induce claustrophobia.
Suitable for ages 16+
Seventy-five of the most intense, funny, and moving minutes of theatre I have ever experienced.
Unapologetic, brutal, a masterpiece…. these guys will give Punchdrunk a run for their money.
Do not miss this hidden gem.
