Kit Redstone is an award winning London-based writer, director and performer of playfully bombastic theatre. Using dark comedy to keep the audience on their toes, Kit's work is typified by direct address. His recent collaboration with Rhum and Clay Theatre Company won The Pleasance Indie Award for Best Theatre Show. It was also selected by British Council for the Edinburgh Showcase and shortlisted for both The Samuel Beckett Award and Amnesty International Freedom of Expression Award. Kit is the Artistic Director of Vacuum Theatre - a cross-disciplinary troupe making cutting edge meta-theatrical work. He also works freelance and collaborates as a writer and director with other companies and practitioners around the world - showing and developing work in Greece, Denmark, Kazakhstan and Brazil. As a transgender man, Kit is particularly interested in the performance of gender and who we are versus what we want to be. His work balances absurdist comedy with heart-felt explorations into what it means to be human.
