The latest reveal in our series of seemingly never ending Trainspotting posters is the introduction of everybody’s friendly neighborhood drug dealer, Johnny ‘The Mother Superior’ Swann.
Played by Paul Young, Johnny is a cheerful soul who feeds a heroin addiction as easily as some of us eat. Perpetually ‘bombed oot ay his box’, Johnny was given the moniker ‘Mother Superior’ due to the length of his habit. And like a typical mother, everyone falls under the care of the White Swan’s tending wing.
This marks Paul Young’s debut appearance with The Devious Theatre Company.
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.
