Quotes & Highlights

“Like sneaking a peek in someone else’s diary, My First Time is a guilty pleasure that’s too much fun to dismiss… [a] surprisingly sophisticated script with great pacing, laugh out loud humor, and moments of genuine pathos.” -dctheatrescene.com
“A diverting evening of first-time tales that is by turns comical, erotic, sentimental, galling, heart-rendering, and even mildly political.” —_GlobeandMail.com _
“Funny and touching to sweet, sexy and silly!”-_Village Voice _

Description

In 1998, a decade before blogging began, a website was created that allowed people to anonymously share their own true stories about their First Times. The website became an instant phenomenon as over 40,000 stories poured in from around the globe that were silly, sweet, absurd, funny, heterosexual, homosexual, shy, sexy and everything in between. And now, these true stories and all of the unique characters in them are brought to life by four actors in this acclaimed 90 minute play.
