In this multi-prize-winning love story, we follow the lives of Mary and John as they grow up and grow old together from the age of eleven to seventy-two. It starts with their first kiss, when John's hamster dies, and continues through all their joys and losses, bad dresses and old girlfriends, and even condoms in their daughter's sock drawer. This piece is a tour de force for two exceptional actors, or a tremendous opportunity to show off your company's extraordinary talent base.
First Kisses was initially workshopped using multiple actors playing the two roles by the Gatesinger Company Ltd. under the working title “When I’m Kissing You” on January 31, 2003, directed by John L’Hommedieu.
