Lights Up: Adam

Inspired by the life of Adam Kashmiry, Adam tells the remarkable story of a young trans man and his struggle across genders and borders to be himself. Originally a multi-award-winning stage play, Adam has been reinvented as a compelling, theatrical on-screen drama.

Born in Egypt, Adam was assigned female at birth but always knew he was a boy. Trapped in a deeply conservative society where falling in love with the wrong person can get you killed, he knew that he had to escape. With a borrowed laptop he typed in a question: ‘Can the soul of a man be trapped in the body of a woman?’ What followed was a catalyst to begin the epic journey for the right to change his body. To the boy he knew himself to be.

Written by playwright and dramaturg Frances Poet, and reworked for the screen, this hour-long drama focuses on Adam’s isolating experiences in a Glasgow flat while awaiting a decision on his asylum claim. Trapped in a Catch-22 where he cannot prove his need for asylum as a trans man until he transitions but is unable to start transitioning until he is granted asylum, Adam is left alone to wrestle with his conflicting thoughts and feelings as every waking moment sees him haunted by figures from both his past and his present.

A virtual theatre festival staged in lockdown. Household names join groundbreaking new talent – pushing the boundaries of what theatre can be when there is no audience in the room.

The day’s important national and international news stories. With Emily Maitlis.

Newsnight is the BBC’s flagship news programme and runs on BBC2 five nights a week. Its format, with a limited number of items covered in each show, allows an in-depth analytical approach to news stories, with a particular emphasis on political and economic affairs. The show largely eschews the “human-interest” stories favoured by many news programmes.
