Let’s Talk About Sex
Age guideline – 15+
Script writers/artists – Danie McIntyre and Natalie Elliott
Let’s Talk About Sex is an ambitious, original, fun, moving, and urgent piece of Rights-based theatre. A naturalistic piece that explores the lack of accurate sex education in British schools. Our education isn’t changing and the gaps in our sex education include, STI’s and the stigma that surrounds them, the LGBTQ+ community and consent. These topics aren’t spoken about due to the governments belief that it isn’t necessary or peoples own embarrassment. But we’re here to open our mouths and tell you that these gaps are necessary, in fact it’s vital to the development from an individual’s childhood/ teenage years to adulthood. We’re here to tell you how important it is to talk about sex.
