Trainspotting, Irvine Welsh's blackly funny look at drug addiction, comes to the stage from Shadow Horse Theatre. Based on Welsh's cult favorite novel, which was later made into a film by Danny Boyle and starring Ewan McGregor, Trainspotting follows Mark Renton, a young heroin addict in working-class Edinburgh. Surrounded by unemployment, AIDS and a group of addicted con men, petty criminals and misfits, Mark tries to get clean and escape. See this gritty, punchy production at The Phoenix Theater in Minneapolis.
