"A play that smacks you in the face, but will leave you feeling f*cking amazing" - NE Lifestyle Magazine

“This is a challenging play to pull off and they tackled such a dark subject masterfully and unafraid … a must-see” – Nights Out In Newcastle

A gaunt, scrawny gang of anti-heroes - Begbie, Renton, Alison and Co - live life on the edge in 1990s Edinburgh. But their gross-out gags and techno-charged hedonism disguise a bleak, desperate undertow of addiction and ruin.

This adaptation of Irvine Welsh’s smash-hit novel about drug fuelled urban alienation speaks as loudly and irreverently as ever. A counter-cultural reaction against Thatcher-era Britain, Trainspotting retains all of its raw energy in exposing the narcotic, dead-end flip side of “loadsamoney” capitalism. 

Be prepared for a no-holds-barred, in-your-face cocktail of loud music, bright lights, strong language and adult themes.
