Trainspotting Live!
Aberystwyth Arts Centre: 13 -14 February The acclaimed no-holds-barred immersive, in-yer-face theatre staging of Irvine Welsh's classic, Trainspotting Live - direct from a world tour - will be at Aberystwyth Arts Centre on 13th and 14th February.

Trainspotting Live captures the passion and the controversy of the famous novel, then globally successful 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 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.

Trainspotting Live, based on the novel by Irvine Welsh, adapted by Harry Gibson, is directed by Kings Head Theatre artistic director, Adam Spreadbury-Maher in collaboration with Greg Esplin.

Harry Gibson's original stage adaptation, written before it became the famous blockbuster film, was instantly successful and controversial, and won The Sunday Times Award for Best New Play.

Warnings: Contains nudity, very strong language and heavy drug / needle use.
