James Seabright presents the King's Head Theatre and
In Your Face Theatre production of
Tickets for Trainspotting at The LowryBy Irvine Welsh
Adapted by Harry Gibson
Directed by Adam Spreadbury-Maher with Greg Esplin
This punchy production recaptures the passion and 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 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.
This is a no-holds-barred immersive, in-yer-face theatre production: this is your ticket to a ride you won’t soon forget.
