TRAINSPOTTING: Character Promo – Sick Boy

‘Good ol fashioned Scottish hoaspitality. Ye cannae beat it’

The final reveal in our series of Trainspotting posters sees the debut bow of the wide eyed wannabe entrepreneur with a heart of pure deviousness, Simon ‘Sick Boy’ Williamson.

Junkie. Rent boy. Pimp. Sean Connery devotee. Sick Boy tries to be a lot of things. As played by John Morton, we see that underneath the smooth calm exterior is a man who would screw over his friends just as easily as he’d screw a couple of American tourists, sexually and financially of courshe. Always on the game, seemingly with nothing to lose… or does he?

John Morton is a founding member of The Devious Theatre Company and has appeared in all of their productions. He is also Co-Director on Trainspotting.

This poster also features Mairead Kiernan (right), who plays a variety of different roles in Trainspotting. This marks Mairead’s debut role with Devious Theatre.

As designed by Paddy Dunne, these character posters for Trainspotting have served to introduce the many faces of Irvine Welsh’s work, or even reintroducing them to people familiar with the previous incarnations of the characters.

Tickets for Trainspotting are already available in The Watergate Theatre and can be purchased at 056 – 7761674.

Trainspotting will arrive onstage, next week, from June 24th to the 28th.
