First time at Waterside Arts Sale

First time at Waterside Arts Sale

It’s so rare for me to think a one-man show isn’t long enough because, let’s be honest, most of them could be condensed into 15 minutes.

But First Time was Not. Long. Enough. It’s a delicious all you can eat buffet of emotions, education, and noughties musical nostalgia which left me hungry for more.

The story of someone contracting HIV aged 17 the first time they had sex could easily be a depressing lament of regret, but Nathaniel has crafted a piece which is full of joy, stamps out shame, and feels – on the 30th anniversary of World AIDS day – like a swan song for the stigma of the past.

Nathaniel successfully uses his personal experience as a prism for the changing shape of society, relating the two in such a way that they both have enough room to breathe.
