I’m ecstatic to be playing ‘Fiona/Adrian’. From the moment I saw the casting and read the play I felt connected to the character’s journey through self discovery. This show is a turning point for theatre both in terms of its subject matter and its casting of non-binary/ trans actors. I can’t wait to use my queerness openly and proudly to retell their story.
