Epic, Entertaining, Ambitious, Clever, Absorbing

See it if you’re a fan of the book/film and/or you love gritty absorbing immersive theatre. This is an intense show.

Don't see it if you’re prudish, don’t like swearing, actors interacting with you. and beware of the splash zone around the toilet…

Thought-provoking, Intense, Epic, Great acting, Absorbing

See it if Second time I've seen it. This story never gets old.

Don't see it if You don't like immersive shows, nudity and uncomfortable situations. This is not a comedy. It's a difficult shaw to watch but amazing.

Edgy, Funny, Entertaining

See it if You want to see an intimate show with a great cast, minimal staging used to maximum effect and well portrayed, very edgy characters

Don't see it if You don't want to interact with the characters and be up close (or sit at the very back)

"This show is not going to be to everyone’s taste. It’s probably the most full on, offensive and challenging production you will ever attend. But it is magnificent and it is timely."

For a previous production

"It is at turns hilarious and stomach-churning ... you can feel too pummelled to take it all in. But it also gives Welsh’s book the authentic tang of young lives lived on the edge."
