Choose life. Choose mortgage payments; choose washing machines; choose cars; choose sitting on a couch watching mind-numbing and spirit-crushing game shows... Choose life.

Do you recognise these words? If so you’re either a fan of the 1993 novel by Irvine Welsh, or the 1996 British cult classic adapted by John Hodge and directed by Danny Boyle, Trainspotting.

The story will take to the stage at the artsdepot in Nether Street, in May this year following a world tour and additional Australian tour.

Trainspotting is the story of Mark Renton and his friends living in the Edinburgh heroin scene of the 80s, with the soundscape of the era’s dance music. Harry Gibson’s original stage adaptation was instantly successful and controversial and won the Sunday Times Award for Best New Play. For this 21st anniversary production, In Your Face Theatre’s Scottish cast have created a snappy and vibrant affirmation of the power and humour of the piece.

This is a no-holds-barred immersive, theatre production: this is your ticket to a ride you won’t soon forget. This production recaptures the passion and controversy of the infamous novel and globally successful film, and repackages it into an immersive production – the audience are literally part of the show, including the notorious “Worst Toilet in Scotland” scene.
