Trainspotting by Irvine Welsh

In a world where work and opportunities are scarce Renton, Sick Boy, Begbie and Spud rail against the trappings of a successful lifestyle held out of their reach, and seek life through the point of a needle.

Published in 1993, Irvine Welsh's cult novel Trainspotting defined a generation and remains one of the most important, hard-hitting stories of our time.

Gareth Nicholls' acclaimed production honours both the iconic novel and Danny Boyle's famous film adaptation, while creating a hard-hitting and poignant theatre show about urban alienation and young lives under pressure.

A critically-acclaimed sell-out in 2016, we're bringing back this production by popular public demand - don't leave it too late to book your tickets!

The production will also tour to the King's Theatre Edinburgh, presented by Selladoor Scotland.

Written by Irvine Welsh | Adapted for the stage by Gareth Nicholls
