First Time

Fri 15 October Fri 15 October

October 15th 2021

Doors 19:30
Onstage from 20:00

Can you remember your first time? Nathaniel can’t seem to forget his. To be fair, he has had it playing on repeat for the last 15 years.
Now the party is over, the balloons have all burst and he’s left living his best queer life: brunching on pills and Googling kangaroo vaginas, ancient condoms and human cesspits on a weekday morning… or is he?
Award-winning HIV+ theatre-maker Nathaniel Hall (It’s a Sin) and Dibby Theatre present their critically acclaimed ‘hilarious’ and ‘heart breaking’ hit autobiographical show about growing up positive in a negative world.
Join him as he blows the lid on the secret he’s been keeping all these years.
A Waterside Arts Commission supported by Arts Council England.
