After running over two and half years in New York, the Off-Broadway hit, My First Time comes to Sydney Opera House from January 4 as part of Summer at the House 2013.
Directed by Wayne Harrison and inspired by a website of the same name, My First Time features four actors performing hysterical and heartbreaking stories about first sexual experiences written by real people.
In 1988, a decade before blogging began, a website was created that allowed people to anonymously share their own true stories about their ‘first times’. MyFirstTime.com became an instant phenomenon with over 53,700 stories pouring in from around the globe that are silly, sweet, funny, absurd, heterosexual, homosexual ,shy, sexy and everything in between.
First sexual experiences are one of the few things that almost every single person on the planet has in common, whether you’re Mick Jagger, Julia Gillard, Barack Obama, George Clooney, Charlie Pickering, P. Diddy, Sam Burgess, Asher Keddie or Beyoncé.
Written by Broadway producer, Ken Davenport, My First Time the play will bring these stories to life on stage and have the audience laughing and reminiscing about their own first time … and thinking about their next one! Experiences submitted by the audience before the performances will also be featured during the show.
The New York production of My First Time featured a promotion where virgins could attend the play for free ... Will the Australian producers be so bold?
The cast for My First Time will be announced in November.
