Transparency Solo Theatre


Dive into the everyday life of a transgender male through the relatable, hilarious and brutally honest lens of a northern working class family. Whilst Jack navigates the hurdles of transition, the old family dynamics are shaken up.

Will he find the courage to face his worst fears? Will he risk it all for love?!

‘Transparency’ is a transformational solo theatre performance written and performed by Jaden Adams. It moves through hard-hitting issues in a way that is at the same time vulnerable, jarring and heartwarming. Taking us through the uncomfortable, sobering and intriguing journey of a fully human transgender life, we hope it will break down some of the barriers between us.

Disclaimer: This story is based on real people and experiences, but is not a true representation of Jaden’s life or his family.

Age advisory 14+. The show contains swearing and offensive material that may be triggering around body dysphoria & gender identity. 

In addition to the solo performance, we create spaces for open and honest conversations about gender, identity and inclusion. The story leads us into discussions where all views can be heard, where we can find a way through some of the questions that gender diversity raises together. We invite the audience to explore what comes up and there is opportunity to ask Jaden or any of the characters questions.

We also run Transparency as an interactive workshop within communities and institutions, adapted to different contexts and intentions…
