Everyone Else Is Doin' It

About the Play...

A play about teenagers and underage sex, sexual heath, sexually transmitted infections, contraception and the surrounding emotions and myths.

Suitable for year 9 - 13

This play tackles the issues of teenage and underage sex. Covering the issues of;

  • Sexually transmitted infections
  • How to protect yourself and your partner
  • Teenage pregnancy
  • That the only way to be sure of not catching a STI or getting pregnant is to not have sex
  • Not being afraid to say no and wait until the right time
  • Dispelling the myth that boys are always the driving force in initiating sex
  • Exploring the emotions surrounding first time sex
  • Where to go for advice about contraception and STI testing
  • What to do it you are pregnant and the options available
  • What to do it you suspect you have a STI
  • Dispelling the myths surrounding sex, pregnancy and STI’s

With a Brechtian approach this play is sketch driven, using the conventions of monologue, duologue, documentary, game show and chat show, this play tackles a very serious issue in a darkly comic way. In seven isolated scenes we meet every one from “Ann Robinson” in “The Weakest Myth” and “Chris Tarrant“ in “Who Wants To Be Infected” to a pregnant fourteen year old and a sixteen year old  boy who wants to wait until he finds some one he loves…or at least likes before he has sex.

“Very informative about STIs.  I think a lot of questions were answered about things that young people would normally feel too embarrassed to ask about”
