Acclaimed immersive adaptation of Irvine Welsh’s classic, staged in a unique tunnel beneath Edinburgh’s streets. The audience are literally part of the action, including the notorious ‘worst toilet in Scotland’ scene. Direct from a global tour, this is a ticket to ride you won’t soon forget. Sold out Fringe 2015, 2016 and 2017 – so book early! Choose life. ‘A big fat hit, just don’t sit near the toilet!’ (NME). ‘Must see for fans of the novel and film alike’ **** (Telegraph). ‘Best way to experience Trainspotting. I was shocked and I wrote the f*cking thing!’ (Irvine Welsh).
