See TESTOSTERONE at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, 2-27 August 2017
TESTOSTERONE is proudly part of the British Council Showcase 2017.
One year after his first injection of testosterone trans man Kit is perceived completely as a man. However, with this triumph comes a crisis of masculinity; what kind of man is he?
Drawing on autobiographical experiences, TESTOSTERONE is the true story of Kit Redstone's first entrance into a male gym changing room at the age of 33. What first appears as a routine ritual of four men changing after a work out, then transforms into an epic coming of age quest for a masculine identity in an environment that affords little space to hide.
