Trainspotting - Live



TRAINSPOTTING LIVE
based on the novel by Irvine Welsh, adapted by Harry Gibson
Presented by Andrew Kay and Associates –
a Kings Head and In Your Face production
22 March – 13 April 2017
preview: Wednesday 22 March 7.30pm
opening night: Thursday 23 March (6pm + 8pm)

Following sold-out runs at the Edinburgh Fringe 2015 and 2016, a hit UK tour and critically acclaimed London season, this no-holds-barred, in-yer-face theatre production that left Irvine Welsh ‘blown away’ is coming to Melbourne.

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, winning 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 punchy, 75-minute production recaptures the passion and controversy of the famous novel, then 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 Live is a must-see for fans … and if you’ve never read the book or seen the film, it’s is a ticket to ride you won’t soon forget!

‘Is it too early to claim that this is just about the pick of the Fringe? Maybe, but if it is then f***ing sue me’ Adelaide Review
