Devious Theatre’s Trainspotting – Road to Nowhere

April 28, 2009

The next in our series of clips from Trainspotting is a big of a sing-song, of sorts. I say of sorts because to be honest, most people were probably too terrified of Niall Sheehy to actually join in. In this scene Begbie briefly speaks about the injustices of “real life”, appearing to Renton (Ross Costigan) as a sort of abstract, heroin-withdrawal apparition. Renton drags himself to his feet and does his best David Byrne impersonation.

Of note: In the original stage adaptation (which is set in the 90’s and not the 80’s) the song of choice was Chumbawamba – Tubthumping…. Yeah, I think you’ll find that setting the show in it’s original era was an infinitely better choice…
