The newest reveal in our series of Trainspotting character promos sees the introduction of the doomed hero at the core of the play, Tommy McKenzie.
Played by Ken McGuire, Tommy is the fit, healthy outgoing moral centre of Trainspotting. He likes his pint, his game of football and loves his Iggy Pop. And he doesn’t do heroin, even if a lot of his mates do more than enough of it.
Tommy’s addiction is life. And when it starts to fall apart on him, darker addictions start to take hold.
Ken McGuire is one of the founding members of Devious Theatre and has appeared in each of our productions so far. He previously directed Cannibal! The Musical.
These character posters for Trainspotting serve to introduce the many faces of Irvine Welsh’s work, or even reintroducing them to people familiar with the previous incarnations of the characters.
As designed by Paddy Dunne, the posters will be unveiled in the weeks leading up to the performance.
Tickets for Trainspotting are already available in The Watergate Theatre and can be purchased at 056 – 7761674.
Trainspotting will arrive onstage from June 24th to the 28th.
