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.
