Staged in a tunnel opened exclusively for the production, Trainspotting Live captures the passion and the controversy of the famous novel, then globally successful film, and repackages it into a full-throttle show where the audience are literally part of the action, including the notorious 'Worst Toilet in Scotland' scene.
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.
For avid fans this is a must, and if you've never read the book or seen Danny Boyle's iconic, generation-defining Trainspotting film: this is your ticket to a ride you won't soon forget.
