Ten Foot Pole Theatre’s latest show, FIRST DAY BACK is a hit with the critics:
“Richly thoughtful… Salerno presents each character with emotional truth.”
– Now Magazine
“From the moment I sat down, I felt like I was back in high school… It’s a thought-provoking yet entertaining piece of theatre.”
– Gay Theatre Toronto
“A poignant, non-preachy, surprisingly funny work… It felt just like high school.”
In FIRST DAY BACK, you enter a school the day after a gay ninth grader, Ollie, killed himself following years of bullying and abuse. There’s an eerie hush in the halls as Ollie’s friends and tormenters gather to figure out who’s responsible. As you take your seats in the art room, be prepared to have your prejudices about school, homophobia, bullies, and teenagers shaken to their core.
