Based on the novel by Irvine Welsh; Adapted by Harry Gibson.
Winner of Sunday Times award for best new play.
A high intensity award winning, rough sketch of a rough lifestyle. This is in-yer-face theatre. It’s not PC-it’s visceral, dangerous, poetic and joyful. Addiction is fundamental to the human condition. This show takes an unbiased examination of people existing, coping and being influenced by their predilections. The social realism of humans coming together to “get worse”. Pre-dating the film, the play was one of the many additions to the 90’s English ‘in-yer-face theatre cannon that grabbed a new generation of audiences.
Director SIMON THOMSON
