Trainspotting
About Trainspotting

A coarse, intense and hilarious rollercoaster ride through the heroin-hinterlands of Thatcher-era Leith.

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, Trainspotting defined a generation and remains one of the most important, hard-hitting stories of our time.

Irvine Welsh’s Trainspotting began its life as a piece of drama at the Citizens Theatre over 20 years ago and returned in 2016 with a critically-acclaimed sold-out run. Hot on the heels of Trainspotting 2, Danny Boyle’s sequel to his phenomenally successful film version, and by popular public demand, the Citizens Theatre is bringing its production of the notorious story back to the stage from 18 October to 11 November 2017. The production will also tour to the King’s Theatre Edinburgh, presented by Selladoor Scotland.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Trainspotting are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
