Trainspotting USA

About Trainspotting USA

Irvine Welsh's "Trainspotting" is the story of a group of young heroin addicts from Edinburgh, Scotland that captured the hearts of many when it was brought to the silver screen in 1996 behind the direction of Danny Boyle. In fact, The British Film Institute named the film version 10th on the "Top 10 British Films of All Time". Now, for the first time ever, theatre-goers will have the opportunity to see this story live on stage in Chicago during its six week run at Theater Wit. Adding to the show's appeal, award winning Chicago director Tom Mullen has readapted the story into an American Landscape, replacing Scotland's Edinburgh town with the more familiar Kansas City, Missouri. Trainspotting USA, as this stage adaption has been named, will begin in mid-October and finish up in late December.
