Overview of Expecting More

It is important that young people are educated about RSE so that they can make positive informed decisions about their well-being, become more self-aware, confident and independent. It is essential that young people understand consent, online relationships, intimate relationships and sexual health; and the risks and complex contexts that go with these issues. Although teenage pregnancy has significantly decreased in the last decade, it is still a prevalent issue which needs to be addressed. Through a series of workshops and interviews with teenage parents from across Cheshire West and Chester, 2engage went on to create a piece of theatre which uses real stories to highlight the different options, paths and issues that surround teenage pregnancy.

The show follows the plight of two young mums as they come to terms with their pregnancy and break the news to those closest to them. Audiences witness the impact the situation has on their lives. From finance to family, and housing to haters, these two girls face the harsh reality of being a young parent.
