Trainspotting Live

Tickets for Trainspotting Live at Mayfield Manchester

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.

Choose life.
