The world premiere stage adaptation inspired by the sequel to cult classic Trainspotting.

15 years after Trainspotting, what has become of Renton, Sickboy, Spud and Begbie? Disturbing, shocking and extremely funny.


IRVINE WELSH - Finally got a chance to read the script of @FringePORNO and I was mightily impressed. I think it'll be an amazing show. I like the way it forges its own identity and is different to both the novel #Porno and the film #Trainspotting2. Excited to see it in Edinburgh this August.
