Fans of British black comedy Trainspotting will be able to experience it in a whole new light in Bristol next month.
A theatre adaptation of Irvine Welsh’s cult novel – which was made into a hit film starring Ewan McGregor in 1996 – will be performed in the tunnels underneath Bristol Temple Meads railway station.
The show follows a group of heroin addicts as they stumble through life, going from one destructive activity to the next.
Trainspotting is part of Tobacco Factory Theatres’ Beyond series, which aims to take performances to new and exciting spaces.
The show contains scenes of nudity, drug use, violence of a sexual nature, claustrophobia and very strong language.
Trainspotting will run at the Loco Klub, in Station Approach, from September 1-24.
There will be performances at 7pm and 8.45pm from Tuesdays through to Sundays, with additional performances at 10.30pm on Fridays and Saturdays.
Tickets, priced £10-14, are available on 01179 020344 or www.tobaccofactorytheatres.com
