hAdam | What's On | Citizens Theatre



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.

Adam and Eve double bill
