This punchy, 75-minute production captures the passion and the controversy of the famous novel and globally successful film, and repackages it into an immersive production – 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, 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.
 
For avid fans, this no-holds-barred, immersive, in-yer-face theatre production is a must. Choose this play. Choose Life.

Warning:
// Nudity
// Very strong language
// Violent & sexual nature
// Heavy drug/needle use
// Claustrophobic
 
For ages 16+

Trainspotting will run from November 3rd 2016 to January 15th 2017 at The Vaults, Launcelot Street, London SE1 7AD. Tickets from £20, book online.
