Trainspotting Live comes to the Riverside Studios as a thrilling immersive experience.

Strictly limited 3-week London season as part of the national tour.

This punchy, immersive production of Trainspotting recaptures the passion and controversy of the famous novel and globally successful film, to create a compelling and unforgettable live experience – including the notorious “Worst Toilet in Scotland” scene.

Harry Gibson’s original stage adaptation was instantly successful and controversial and won the Sunday Times Award for Best New Play. For their acclaimed revival, which has been seen in London, New York, and across five sell-outs Edinburgh Fringe seasons, Scottish company In Your Face Theatre’s cast have created a snappy and vibrant affirmation of the power and humour of the piece.

This is a no-holds-barred, ticket to a ride you won’t soon forget. Choose life!

Trainspotting Live is booking until 6 November 2022 at Riverside Studios.
