Adelaide Festival Season : Trainspotting Live

It's Festival Season here in Adelaide and there are sooo many shows, events and live experiences to catch that my calendar is filling up quickly.

This weekend is the last weekend you can catch Transpotting Live - don't miss out - click HERE to get your tickets.

For the Trainspotting Live opening weekend me and my hubby were lucky enough to get tickets.  Knowing that this is one of our favourite movies we were interested and super excited to see what Trainspotting Live would look like...

We were not disappointed!

Trainspotting Live brings the 1980s heroin scene of Edinburgh right up close and in your face!  The audience get to witness this sharp lesson on life as we see the unforgettable story of Mark Renton played out before us LIVE.

The venue is perfect for this live experience.  Descending from the bustle of Hindley Street we enter a small bar area and feel we are transported into the 'Trainspotting world'.  The glow stick, can of beer and 'choose life' wrist band add to the atmosphere as we are ushered 'en scene' and surrounded by pulsating dance music and lights.

Having read that 'no seats are safe' we found ourselves quite close to a dirty toilet (could this be the toilet where Renton 'loses' his suppository!?)

As an audience, we are up close and personal with the Trainspotting Live cast as we witness all our favourite parts of the movie come to life before our eyes.  The all Scottish cast are truly awesome and, as Renton and friends give an eye-opening performance, Trainspotting Live captures the rawness and controversy of the hugely successful book and film that have come before it.

Trainspotting Live is showing at the Station Underground, 52-54 Hindley Street, Adelaide and runs for 1 hour 15 mins.

For those unfamiliar with Irvine Welsh's book nor the 1996 movie starring Ewan McGregor, a word of warning is necessary - Trainspotting Live features explicit language, drug use, nudity and is suitable for those 16 years+

Trainspotting Live is showing now until 19th March 2017 and tickets are available online HERE for more show information and to book your tickets.

Choose Life!

Kisses 'n' Smiles from me xx :)
