First Time

Theatre-maker Nathaniel Hall stands against a bright yellow background holding a bowl of brightly coloured pills. He hold them to his mouth on a spoon as if they are like breakfast cereal.

First Time is a theatre show about one young man’s experiences of contracting HIV after the first time he had sex when he was 16.

The show is written and performed by Nathaniel Hall, who recently starred in the Channel 4 drama It’s A Sin. The show is based on Nathaniel’s real-life story.

The award-winning show aims to get people talking about HIV. And also to change people’s perceptions of HIV.

First Time has been a huge hit wherever it has been performed in the past. Get your tickets early for this sellout show.
