Fresh from its phenomenal success on a world tour, the smash hit immersive theatre production of Irvine Welsh and Danny Boyle's iconic, generation defining Trainspotting tours the UK from May 2017, following a major tour in Australia. 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 fu**in junk food intae yir mooth. Choose rotting away, pushing and sh*tng yersel in a home, a total fu**in embarrassment tae the selfish, fu**ed-up brats ye've produced. Choose life. The production captures the passion and the controversy of the famous novel, then globally successful film, and repackages it into a no-holds barred immersive show - the audience are literally part of the action, including the notorious "Worst Toilet in Scotland" scene. In Your Face Theatre's Scottish cast have created a snappy and vibrant affirmation of the power and humour of the piece. Against a dynamic soundscape of 80s dance music, the stories of a group of friends living through the Edinburgh heroin scene - Renton, Tommy, Sick Boy, Begbie and Alison - are brought to life with humour, poetry and provocatively graphic scenes. Directed by Kings Head Theatre artistic director Adam Spreadbury-Maher in collaboration with Greg Esplin.
