English Premiere

Adam

National Theatre of Scotland

‘An unforgettable thunderbolt of feeling’ The Telegraph ★★★★★

Adam is National Theatre of Scotland’s remarkable production about one trans man’s powerful true story - and is performed by the real-life Adam who reenacts and shares his extraordinary journey.

If you are born in a country where being yourself can get you killed, exile is your only choice. Adam is the true story of a young transgender man having to make that choice and begin his journey. From Egypt to Scotland, this powerful, award-winning production charts Adam’s fight across borders and genders to find a place to call home.

A spellbinding multimedia production, Adam features a stunning score composed by Olivier award-winner Jocelyn Pook (Eyes Wide Shut, Gangs of New York) sung by a virtual choir of trans and non-binary individuals from around the world.

"When the show opened at the Edinburgh Fringe last year we were all overwhelmed by the responses we had from our audiences. All kinds of different people, young and old, from all over the world, came along and found something beautiful in Adam’s story, because it’s one that is both personal and universal." Director, Cora Bissett
