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.

A collaboration between Kit Redstone and Rhum and Clay Theatre Company.
