GradCo Studio at Limelight on Oxford presents award winning Trainspotting: The play, based on the novel by Irvine Welsh and adapted by Harry Gibson.
Addiction is fundamental to the human condition. Trainspotting: 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 90s 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”. It’s not entirely realistic, but it will be performed with the utmost courage and truth.
The play is directed by Simon Thomson and features emerging actors Adam Golledge, Bruno Attanasio, Matthew Vautin, Jayden Muir, Shaw Cameron, Julie Bettens, Stephanie Eloise, Cassius Russell, and Jenae O’Connor.
GradCo Studio strives to make thought-provoking work and give its members multiple opportunities to perform. Housed in a beautiful old 3 level terrace, Limelight on Oxford provides an array of enticing entertainment and events, accompanied by tasty food and tantalising drinks.
