The hit immersive production of Irvine Welsh and Danny Boyle’s iconic story will be embarking on a UK tour, following two successful runs at the King’s Head Theatre and recently at the Vaults Theatre.
Touring the UK from May, the immersive production is directed by Kings Head Theatre artistic director Adam Spreadbury-Maher in collaboration with Greg Esplin.
Choose us. Choose life. Choose mortgage payments; choose washing machines; choose cars; choose sitting on a couch watching mind-numbing and spirit-crushing game shows, stuffing fuckin junk food intae yir mooth. Choose rotting away, pushing and shiteing yersel in a home, a total fuckin embarrassment tae the selfish, fucked-up brats ye’ve produced.
Trainspotting is the story of Mark Renton and his friends, living through the Edinburgh heroin scene of the 80s.
