Written by Charles Mee; Directed by Kim Weild@ June 26 @ 7pm

As a director with a history of collaborating with Deaf artists, who actively seeks to make diverse, accessible and inclusive theatre, I am beyond thrilled Cherry Lane Theatre is offering an ASL interpreted performance of FIRST LOVE. Their commitment is a welcoming, inclusive decision that will not only expand their audience but also exposes hearing audiences to a rich, vital, potent and very alive language.  The visual poetry of ASL is a perfect fit with the poetry of Charles Mee’s writing.” - Kim Weild

A couple in their sixties meet and fall in love for the first time in their lives. Through the eyes of celebrated playwright Charles Mee, First Love embraces Edith and Harold as they work their way toward one another through the accumulated baggage of their lives, wondering if they can avoid sabotaging the last chance for love they'll ever have.
