Trainspotting

Trainspotting Live

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, written before it became the famous blockbuster film, was instantly successful and controversial, and won the Sunday Times Award for Best New Play. For this 21st anniversary production, In Your Face Theatre’s Scottish cast have created a snappy and vibrant affirmation of the power and humour of the piece. A punchy, 75 minute production that recaptures the passion and the controversy of the famous novel, then globally successful film, and repackages it into an immersive production.
