Trainspotting…

EDP Trainspotting 15 02 14…not noting loco numbers, but the forthcoming production by my guests this morning, Early Doors Productions.

Danny Boyle’s highly acclaimed 1996 film was based on a novel by Irvine Welsh, which director Amy Clayton explained was based on his own experiences – but it tackles issues wider than the culture of hard drug addiction around which the story is based.

Trainspotting_0EDP never shy away from tackling difficult productions, in terms of both content and technical feasibility, and we discussed some of the challenges involved in putting on a stage version of such an iconic film – including how hard it is for actors from southern England to tackle the Edinburgh accent! As for whether and how they portray the famous toilet scene, however, you’ll just have to go along and see for yourself…

We also talked about EDP’s next production, Ladykillers, which is still being cast – if you’d like to audition just get in touch via the contacts page.

Trainspotting is at Chelmsford’s Cramphorn Theatre from Thursday 6 to Saturday 8 March; as you might expect, it’s not advised for anyone under 18.
