‘Trainspotting Live’ tours to Mayfield Manchester this March!


The acclaimed King’s Head Theatre and In Your Face Theatre production of Trainspotting Live – the immersive, no-holds-barred staging of Irvine Welsh’s classic novel – will run at Mayfield Manchester from 29 March to 21 April 2019 as part of a Spring 2019 UK tour.

Directed by Kings Head Theatre Artistic Director Adam Spreadbury-MaherTrainspotting Live captures the passion and the controversy of the famous novel and film, and repackages it into a full-throttle show where the audience are literally part of the action, including the notorious ‘Worst Toilet in Scotland’ scene.



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. For their acclaimed revival, which has been seen in London, New York, and across five sell-out 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 immersive, in-yer-face theatre production: this is your ticket to a 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.
