Losing It – Public Performance

June 16, 2017 at 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

£5.00

Losing It – a play about coming together and falling apart.
Written by Nina Lemon and performed by Peer Productions’ young company.

This year Peer Productions takes on sex education as you’ve never seen it before – “Because there’s a bit more to it than sperm meets egg.”

All the boys at school seem to be only interested in one thing, so when naive Charlotte meets an older guy online who promises her a fairytale romance, she is sure it’s true love. It’s up to her friend Ash to try and stop her from making a terrible mistake but Ash has worries of their own – “Are you a boy or a girl?” When a drunken year 11 house party gets out of control, Tim makes a decision which will affect both him and Seren for the rest of their lives – “She didn’t say no!” Meanwhile Mike’s become hooked on internet pornography, David’s still a virgin and Rob’s fallen in love.

A new commission for 2017, from the writer of Hidden and the Teenage Pregnancy Project, Losing It offers year 9+ students a new take on sex education. This musical play tells the story of a group of 18 year olds as they look back on their 7 years at secondary school. Developed in partnership with young people from a range of schools, this frank and inclusive, large scale 90 minute production addresses the questions young people really want answered.

Content warning: Suitable for ages 13+. Play includes explicite and frank discussions abour sex, relationships and sexuality.

The play includes:

• Healthy/unhealthy relationships
• Same sex and difference sex relationships
• A transgender character
• Sexting
• Internet grooming and child sexual exploitation.
