More than just the birds and the bees.

Think back to 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.

One petition, one riot and one school suspension later, Eva sets out on her own quest to discover just what it is that everyone is hiding.

Written by Gita Bezard (The Advisors, Girl Shut Your Mouth) this hilarious and pointed new show from The Last Great Hunt holds up the fears of the adults against the questions of the teenagers. This is: The Talk

A series of sharply drawn skits

Victoria Laurie, The Australian

This is an important, feminist play.

Fourth Wall Media

Written and directed by award-winning theatre maker Gita Bezard, The Talk is a fast-paced 70 minute comedy, exploring what we say to teenagers about sex, and what we don't.

Theatre Now

Gita Bezard is a highly organised playwright and director, capable of delivering tight and technically complex scenes that rely more on snapshots of text, movement and music, than conventional dialogue.
