"Because the world revolves around me and all I see is what I see."
Mira lives by the sea with her mum in a seemingly peaceful town. But when she loses her virginity to her teacher in the school car park, her world begins to unravel.
This one woman show invites the audience into the abstract spaces of Mira’s psyche. Through youthful questioning, ramblings and memories, Mira makes a confession.
Co-produced by Brighton’s multi-award-winning Broken Silence Theatre, My First Time was in a Car Park is a devastating new play that investigates the psychological repercussions of abuse.
The play is preceded by a series of short one-person vignettes on the theme: Bodies by the Sea.
Reviews for My First Time was in a Car Park:
"The real force majeure, is the writing. It’s a difficult thing to address rape, death and mental illness in the first place, trickier still to delve into these themes while peppering them with humour. The moments of hilarity in the blistering script act as a fine conduit for the dark subject matter." ★★★★★ (South City London)
"While it’s difficult to watch, this is the kind of piece you want to see again."★★★★★ (Blog of Theatre Things)
"Brave, assured and hopeful" ★★★ ★ (The Reviews Hub)
