My First Time is an experiment in writing and theatre. New writing on the theme of ‘My First Time’ has been adapted into live staged experiences by theatre directors. Come along and be the first audience. Be part of the process.
Tickets go straight into supporting the artists involved in making this project. Thank you to LitCrawl for supporting the first showing.
Pip Adam’s writing has been described as ‘a kind of post-post modern fiction – nothing meta, no irony, no narrative arc, no insights or character transformations – the stories are flatline and searing and real’ (Helen Lehndorf, Palmerston North Library). Her diverse work has appeared in Sport, Glottis, Turbine, Landfall, Lumière Reader, Hue & Cry, Metro and Overland. Pip’s short story collection Everything We Hoped For and novel I’m Working on a Building are both published by Victoria University Press [ LINK http://vup.victoria.ac.nz/brands/Pip-Adam.html]. Pip is a books reviewer on RNZ’s Jesse Mulligan show and she produces Better off Read a podcast where she talks to writers and other artists about reading. She currently facilitates writing workshops in several universities and Arohata Women’s Prison where she works with the Right Here, Right Now collective.
