Trainspotting Live is a 75 minutes production recapturing the passion and the controversy of the famous novel, and globally successful film. It repackages the cult classic into a punchy immersive production – the audience is literally part of the show, including the notorious “Worst Toilet in Scotland” scene. Back for a second fix at The Vaults (Waterloo).

Trainspotting is the story of Mark "Rent Boy" Renton and his friends, living through the Edinburgh heroin scene of the late 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.

The show is a no-holds-barred immersive, in-yer-face theatre production left Irvine Welsh feeling “blown away” – for avid fans this is a must, and if you’ve never read the book or seen the film: this is your ticket to a ride you won’t soon forget.
