My First Time

Some of the stories are funny. Some are dark, some are awkward, and some are relatable. But above all else, they’re real. That’s because the monologues in My First Time were pulled from real-life tales of peoples’ first sexual experiences, each one submitted online. Playwright Ken Davenport then wove them into a single script to be performed by four actors. During the original 2007 production—Davenport’s work was praised by The Village Voice for its enormous scope. “The stories range from funny and touching to sweet, sexy, and silly to downright disturbing,” wrote critic Tristan Taormino. “Davenport has clearly made a conscious effort to represent a fair amount of diversity, with stories from both straight and queer voices of different ages, backgrounds, and abilities.”

But there’s also a chance the audience might see their own life presented onstage. Before the show, they they can fill out an anonymous survey to have their personal stories integrated into the performance.

Broken Nose Theatre

Founded in 2012, Broken Nose Theatre has already made an impression. Maybe it’s because they don’t just tell stories—they start conversations. Their first-ever show was the Chicago premiere of My First Time, which invited audiences to volunteer their own stories about their first sexual experiences. Likewise, their followup, Beautiful Broken, blurred the lines between reality and fiction by taking place in the Chicago theater scene. The Theatre’s most recent production, From White Plains, addressed issues of bullying and social media and the potential lasting effects. The company’s brief history also includes the Bechdel Fest, a six-day celebration of plays predominantly written and directed by Chicago women.
