First Love/Worst Love is an extremely well-crafted, creatively staged sequence of emotive vignettes detailing love's ups and downs. The stories are raw, honest, funny and vulnerable.

One particular line in First Love/Worst Love brought tears to my eyes. Which passage resonates with your love history?

I know Julie better after watching her play, which is the result of all good art!... full review
