Sex FM Review

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Sex FM Year 10 got the opportunity to watch a live performance of the production 'Sex FM'. This production was brought to us by the theatre company called Face Front. Sex FM was about teenage sex and it showed what the consequences were if you didn't use contraception. It was also about getting pressured into having sex and getting infected with STI [sexually transmitted infection] and where to turn to for advice and help. The main theme the production was about was teenage sex. The issues it discussed were the consequences you would face if you didn't use contraception, for example, if you got pregnant mistakenly and don't know what to do. Another issue was if people, like friends, pressured you into sex and the regret you'd feel, getting infected with STI and knowing the symptoms so you could get a check up and be safe. ...read more.

Middle

She played one of the main characters and played it very well. She used a good volume of voice making it clear and understandable. Stacey used a lot of space which made it good because she didn't stay in one place. Her facial expression and body language expressed the way she felt so the audience understood what type of girl she was. She was the sweet, caring one yet one who usually does whatever she can to get what she wants. For example, if she was upset but didn't say it you'll know she was from her facial expression and body language. What the actor was trying to communicate to the audience about her character was never to pressure your partner into having sex because it could lead to unhappy endings and to be aware of STI and protecting yourselves. Another one of these characters is Slammer. ...read more.

Conclusion

Another aspect is the traverse staging. This made the performance better because it as in the middle unlike most plays where the audience is always behind. This is a positive thing because it's different and you can see from different angles. Also the audience was more spread out so that gave it a more chance of getting involved and giving your opinion knowing you'll get heard. I think the production did rather well. This is because it gave a clear message to us all and made us realise what happens when we follow the crowd and show a fake identity. I don't think any improvements should be made because it's simple as it is, clear and shows everything in a way that young minds could understand. I would very much recommend this to other young people because like I mentioned before it's simple, clear and understandable to the teenage audience.
