James Seabright presents the King’s Head Theatre and In Your Face Theatre production of TRAINSPOTTING LIVE

By Irvine Welsh
Adapted by Harry Gibson
Directed by Adam Spreadbury-Maher with Greg Esplin and Ben Anderson

This punchy, immersive production recaptures the passion and controversy of the famous novel and globally successful film, to create a compelling and unforgettable live experience – 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, ticket to a ride you won’t soon forget. Choose life.
