Trainspotting by Irvine Welsh adapted by Harry Gibson

17th - 21st Apr 2018

Event info

Start Time: 7.30pm

Tickets: £14.00 Concessions: £11.50


Description

A gaunt, scrawny gang of anti-heroes - Begbie, Renton, Spud 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.

Audiences are advised that this production includes very strong language, nudity and scenes of drug use throughout. 

Age recommendation 16+ (any younger, at the discretion of parents/guardians)

There are also flashing and strobe lights.
