Synopsis: Adri, a young Indian trans woman, navigates a world that refuses to see her as she is, and finds her truth through musical theatre and magical femme friendship.
‘In My Mother’s Closet’ explores the intersections of being brown, trans, and a woman. Through song, Adri reconciles the struggle of wanting to belt out her truth while not wanting to risk her relationship with her religious mother. With the support of her best friend, she perseveres.
