Transparency is a solo show about growing up trans in a northern, working class family.
As Jack navigates his way through relationships, life, love, work and everyday dilemmas, his mum, dad,
nan and workmates all have their own views.
Will Jack find the courage to face his worst fears? Will he risk it all for love?!
‘Transparency’ is a relatable, hilarious and brutally honest solo show written and performed by Jaden
Adams who grew up on a council estate in Oldham. This is his first performance since transition.

Written and performed by Jaden Adams, with support from director Francesca
Murray-Fuentes, writer Mary Cooper and coach/mentor Olwen May

“Phenomenal performance – a poignant, funny and human story of transition, family and self discovery. Go
and see it if you can.”
“OUTSTANDING debut performance! Life in the shoes of a trans male, every perspective portrayed with
such love and compassion. Answers so many questions people would have about being trans in a
beautifully raw, profound, hilarious way. Bravo!”
