FIRST TIME LAST TIME
by SCOTT SHARPLIN
"You say the first time is the last time, fine."
"Okay. Let's do it."
Ben and Airlea have nothing in common except a mutual attraction. With no interest in long term commitment, they embark on a succession of first dates and last loves filled with harmony and heart break, intimacy and disconnection, romantic fancy and hard reality. A moving and personal drama about a one night stand that becomes a lifetime.
This contemporary love story is at times equally hilarious and heartbreaking, cynical and sentimental. Developed through the Playwrights Atlantic Resource Centre and will make its professional world premiere at Shadow Theatre in Edmonton in March 2015. The play will then receive an east coast production in Sydney, NS at the Highland Arts Theatre in May, before veering once again West for Toronto.
The Aim for the Tangent production will take place June 10th - 21st of 2015 at the Theatre Passe Muraille Backspace.
