THE TALK

by Gita Bezard

Remember when you had ‘The Talk’ (you’ve probably tried to forget it). Maybe your mother told you to “be careful”. Maybe your teacher told you to “abstain”. You felt prepared, right?

Eva is 15 and all she wants is answers. No more condom demonstrations or close-up slides of chlamydia. She needs honesty, and she’s not afraid to get it. In her quest for truth, she starts a riot, robs a sex shop and stands up to more than one perv. She’s suffers through an excruciating conversation with her parents, makes a new friend and chats with a secret admirer who turns out to be more than she bargained for.

The Talk is more than just the birds and the bees, it’s a play that holds up the fears of the adults against the knowledge of the teenagers.
