About Adam

One of two intimate productions giving an insight into the real life experiences of trans people in Scotland.

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.

In a world first, Adam features a 120-strong, international world choir of trans individuals from across the globe which has been uniquely integrated into this remarkable multimedia production.

Adam has been conceived for the stage by Cora Bissett, who previously brought the real life story of the Glasgow Girls to the Citizens’ stage.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Adam are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
