Forget what you learned in first grade: '1+1' is one of the most difficult problems on the planet, often taking a lifetime to solve. Just ask the characters in Happily Ever After, the dazzling new play by Cristina Colmena. Three couples of different ages, representing a lifetime of romantic struggles, try to puzzle out what it means to be "together." There are the young lovebirds connected by a powerful attraction yet destined to part; the cynical middle-aged "one night standers" failing to act on a promising encounter; and, finally, an older couple keeping up appearances despite their profound unhappiness. Hanna Bondarewska, artistic director and founder of the Ambassador Theater, directs the world premiere production of this compelling dark comedy. Learn More

Quotes & Highlights
- "Like sneaking a peek in someone else’s diary, <em>My First Time</em> 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." --<a target="_blank" href="http://dctheatrescene.com/2010/11/09/my-first-time">dctheatrescene.com</a>
- “A diverting evening of first-time tales that is by turns comical, erotic, sentimental, galling, heart-rendering, and even mildly political.” --<em>GlobeandMail.com </em>
- "Funny and touching to sweet, sexy and silly!"--<em>Village Voice </em>
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.
