Adam is the remarkable, true story of a young trans man's journey from Egypt to Scotland, and his 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.
