My First Time Was In A Car Park
Mira loses her virginity in the car park at her school. She sees a baby and her grandfather die in the sea. She sees a man in light blue tracky bottoms dancing along the seashore. She drinks by the sea and becomes God in the outdoors.
The one-woman show invites the audience into the abstract spaces of Mira’s mind. Using philosophical ponderings, ramblings and memories, Mira shares a moment of her life. With a comedic and absurdist approach to language, the play hopes
to be a truthful reflection of the ways in which trauma manifests itself.
‘A powerful and disturbing story of one woman’s teenage trauma’
‘In an acute, sobering deconstruction of one female mind, the audience is driven through fractured states of anger, detachment, joy, and sensuality.’
‘Bringing to life the unbreakable relationship between mother and daughter.’
An intelligently written, inventive and very human piece.’
‘while it’s difficult to watch, this is the kind of piece you want to see again.’
‘A piece of feminist writing which is performed with an energy and powerfulness which makes me feel that is is a show which will be on my mind for a while.’
References to sexual abuse, rape, drug-taking and cancer, strong language from the start.
