It’s about time we caught up with Renton, Spud, Begbie, Sick Boy and the rest.

Irvine Welsh’s classic novel Trainspotting, transformed for the silver screen by Danny Boyle in 1996, is now the basis for a new production at the King Street Theatre. It’s a tale of drugs, sex, friendship and crime set in murky 1980s Edinburgh – because ye cannae get wide wi Franco if ye dinnae mind the bairns and birds of Leith and the New Town.

Black Box Theatre Company‘s production of Trainspotting opens on Thursday May 8 at King Street Theatre, Newtown.
