Theatre News: Testosterone at the New Diorama

Award-winning Rhum & Clay collaborates with acclaimed transgender actor and writer Kit Redstone to bring Testosterone to the New Diorama Theatre from 22 November 2016.

Written and performed by renowned female-male transgender actor and writer Kit Redstone, Testosterone asks, if Kit is a man, what sort of a man is he?

Testosterone is the true story of transman, Kit, and his 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 workout transforms into an epic coming of age quest for masculine identity in an environment that affords little space to hide.

The piece will bring together Kit Redstone’s direct address delivery style with Rhum and Clay’s ability to put characters’ complex inner workings on the stage with the innovative use of movement and visuals.

A compelling, fast-paced and often funny story, Testosterone provides a rare and truthful insight into what it means to be a “man” from someone who has inherited the identity, rather than been born with it.
