Ahead of its premiere at The Vaults tonight, Trainspotting Live has announced a 2-week extension to its London run.
The new stage production is an immersive experience based on Irvine Welsh’s classic novel held at The Vaults in a tunnel opened exclusively for it. Trainspotting Live captures the passion and controversy of the novel in a full-throttle experience where the audience are part of the action.
Against a dynamic soundscape of 80s dance music, the stories of a group of friends living through the Edinburgh heroin scene – Renton, Tommy, Sick Boy, Begbie and Alison – are brought to life with humour, poetry and provocatively graphic scenes It’s a ticket to ride you won’t soon forget. Choose life. For avid fans this is a must, and if you’ve never read the book or seen Danny Boyle’s iconic, generation-defining Trainspotting film: this is your ticket to a ride you won’t soon forget.
The cast for the show is James Boal (as Mother Superior), Andrew Still (Sick Boy), Rachael Anderson (Laura), Finlay Bain (Tommy), Chris Dennis (Begbie), Erin Marshall (Alison) and Frankie O’Connor (Renton).
Trainspotting Live will run at The Vaults from 27th March for 10 weeks to Sunday 3rd June. The show was previously booking to 20th May.
Following its London run, Trainspotting Live will transfer Off Broadway to Roy Arias Stages 777 8th Avenue from 5th July.
