This fast paced kinetic play is faithful to the movie written by Irvine Welsh and also it’s downfall. Unless you have seen the movie TRAINSPOTTING, there is no way you can follow what’s happening in the play.
I understand the need for speed but the raw emotions got lost because they did not have any moment to stop, and take time for the audience to let what’s happening sink in.
The only time they slowed down was when Sickboy was holding his dead baby.
They should have done this at the last scene when Tommy will overdose. The strobe lights was just overdoing it. Sometimes, less is more.

One of the highlights of course is the infamous toilet scene. The production design recreated it so well, you will really squirm from disgust (in a fun way). Warning: it is interactive so you might get some sprinkles here and there.

The two actors who bared all are Andrew Barrett who played Renton, the Ewan McGregor role. He has a lean body, smooth and an uncut cock with tight foreskin. He has very curly bush and tight balls. Nice buns and smooth hole too. You can sit anywhere and you will be able to see all of him.
The other one is Greg Esplin as Tommy.

He has 2 nude scenes. He shows us his uncut cock and red pubes as he removes vaporub from his cock. He has nice tattoos on his right leg too. In the last scene where he lie on the bed, depending on where you sit, you can see either his smooth hole as he was on his side or ogle his cock and balls as he tries to find a vein in his inguinal area.
Definitely a must see for nudity lovers.
