I’m Having Sex
I’m Having Sex tells the story of an inner–city teenage schoolgirl that is having a secret relationship with her mother’s husband.
Husband, mother and daughter are brought to the jagged edges of heartbreak and forgiveness in this eye-opening tale that explores elements of Child Sexual Exploitation and Child abuse.
We use this play as a resource within schools to raise awareness on this very serious issue. The play touches on topics such as sexual abuse, underage sex, infidelity, blended families, trust, troubled homes, gang-related activity, peer pressure, promiscuity and teenage parents.
The aim is for the audience to gain insight into the damaging consequences that sexual exploitation has on a young person's life and to equip young people to recognise abuse. It also allows them to explore ways they could protect themselves from this and similar situations.
