  • The Skinny March 2021

A full year on from the start of the COVID-19 lockdown, this month's cover story looks at the pandemic's impact on NHS workers, and the material conditions they face in the health service. Inside, we reflect on the life and work of SOPHIE, and consider the enduring impact of Trainspotting, 25 years after its cinema release. There's a whole lot more, including the first of our series of longreads with Edinburgh International Festival, in which we take the deepest of dives into the history of theatre. It beat the Spanish flu, the talkin' pictures, and Oliver Cromwell; can it see off the 'Rona? Early signs look good!

Scroll down to find your nearest copy – the magazine will be popping up in the following places this week (w/c 1 Mar), with more venues added to the list as and when we can.
