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 (Channel 4’s 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 truly remarkable story of triumph, I was in awe.’ Russell T. Davies (Doctor Who, It’s A Sin)

Age guidance: 14+

(The Guardian)
‘Nathaniel Hall is a Mancunian writer and performer in his early 30s with an easy wit and charm. The story he’s telling, however, couldn’t be heavier – aged 17, he was infected with HIV by an older boyfriend the first time he had sex. Hall tells the story of how he struggled out from under the stigma still imposed on people with HIV, and gives a gentle – and funny – sex education lesson on the way. It’s a real tribute to Hall that this story is told without self-pity, but this is a show that packs an emotional punch that resonates even after you’ve left the theatre.’ The Guardian
