“Fresh, funny, grim and glorious” Londonist

This is a no-holds-barred immersive, in-yer-face theatre production: your ticket to a ride you won’t soon forget.

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.

Choose life.
