If you are born in a country where being yourself can get you killed, exile is your only choice.

Adam is the remarkable, true story of a young trans man having to make that choice and begin his journey.  From Egypt to Scotland, it charts Adam's fight across borders and genders to find a place to call home.

Told with warmth and featuring a 120-strong digital trans choir from across the globe Adam boldly explores the experience of a young transgender person.

Adam is performed by Adam Kashmiry, the real person on which the story is based, directed by Olivier Award-Winner Cora Bissett, and written by playwright and dramaturg Frances Poet, with music composed by Jocelyn Pook.
