Based on the novel by Irvine Welsh and adapted by Harry Gibson, Trainspotting, the Play is presented by GradCo Studio. Addiction is fundamental to the human condition. The play takes an unbiased examination of people existing, coping and being influenced by their predilections. It’s not PC; it’s visceral and dangerous, poetic and joyful. Pre-dating the beloved 1996 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. The play is somewhat different to the film, as it doesn’t offer the characters any real chance to escape from their circumstances but instead presents vignettes based on parts of the novel, ranging from the mortally grave to the comically fantastical. Trainspotting, the Play looks at the social realism of humans coming together to “get worse”. Housed in a beautiful old three level terrace, Limelight on Oxford provides an array of enticing entertainment and events, accompanied by tasty food and tantalising drinks.
