Description

Remember your first time? Nathaniel can't forget his. Now the party's over, the balloons have burst and he's living his best queer life: brunching on pills and googling kangaroo vaginas on a weekday morning – or is he? HIV+ theatre-maker Nathaniel Hall presents a funny and frank autobiographical show about staying positive in a negative world. Join him as he blows the lid on the secret he's kept for the last 15 years. 'A remarkable story, I was in awe' (Russell T Davies). 'One hell of a ride' ***** (NorthernSoul.me.uk). 'Deeply moving' **** (Attitude Magazine).
