National Theatre of Scotland
This true performance of his struggle as an asylum seeker and as a trans man is one that will blow you away
Inspired by the life of Adam Kashmiry
Adam tells the remarkable story of a young trans man and his struggle across genders and borders to be himself. Originally a National Theatre of Scotland stage play, Adam has been reinvented as a compelling, theatrical on-screen drama.
Written by Frances Poet and directed by Cora Bissett and Louise Lockwood, this hour-long drama reworked for the screen focuses on Adam’s isolating experiences in a Glasgow flat while awaiting a decision on his asylum claim. Trapped in a Catch 22 where he cannot prove his need for asylum as a trans man until he transitions but is unable to start transitioning until he is granted asylum, Adam is left alone to wrestle with his conflicting thoughts and feelings.
Adam features a virtual online trans world choir, brought together for the original award-winning stage production. They appear together on-screen singing Jocelyn Pook’s epic choral original score.
