Trainspotting Live in Waterloo

This punchy and controversial 75 minute production recaptures the passion found in both novel and film and turns it into an immersive production where the audience become part of the show in the notorious Worst Toilet in Scotland scene. For those unfamiliar with Trainspotting, it tells the story of Mark Renton and his friends who are living through the Edinburgh heroin scene of the 1980’s. This is a must see for avid fans of this in-your-face, no-holds-parred production this weekend.

The Country Wife in Southwark

If you’re looking for a show to attend this Saturday, head to the Southwark Playhouse to watch William Wycherley’s The Country Wife which is in its final weeks. Set in late 1920’s London, a city exploding with a heavy mix of jazz, gin and scandalous affairs, this play tells the story of Margery who, dazzled by all the delights of city life, is determined to savour everything she can, regardless of the consequences. The Twenties in London come with a decadent social scene and sexual revolution meaning nothing can stand in a woman’s way. With multiple rave reviews and 4 nominations for the Off West End Awards, this show is well worth catching before it ends.
