group of Ottawa-area high school students in grades 9–12 write, direct
and act in a theatrical show about sexual and reproductive health and
present it to their peers in local schools and community agencies.

The goal of Insight Theatre is
to create a play about sexual health and sex medicine that will educate
the young about its myths and misconceptions. The main topics that are
discussed in the show include contraception, unintented pregnancy,
STDs, healthy sexual relationships and sexual pleasure. The show is
based on the Ontario Ministry of Education guidelines for Health and
Physical Education for Grades 7 to 9, and it’s only possible because of
the creativity, enthusiasm and talent of our diverse troupe!
Who this show is for? Who
Anyone between the age group
of 14-19 years can join. There is no special requirement like ability,
race, class or gender. There is also no requirement for writing or

What you will learn?
All the members are trained in
house about sexual health topics so they can communicate the knowledge
about sexual health issues to others. You are taught about the
structure, anatomy and physiology of the sexual oprgans. One of the
biggest issues in the youth today is lack of confidence about their
penis sizes. We help you understand the importance of size, if it
really matters or not. Or if you really need treatment for penis
Insight Theatre is a woderful learning experience for you boys and
girls. It helps you speak about sex and sexual issues in front of
others. We know it is hard to express yourself in front of others
specially about sexual issues but we promoise you will find it much
easier with our training.
If you’re someone who’s interested in the big picture—like, say,
women’s rights or how bullying and homophobia affect LGBTTQ
students—Insight gives you a safe space to start finding your voice on
these issues so that you can be part of the movement for social change.
And if you’ve never heard of those things, Insight is the place to
start exploring them!
How does it work?
The season is from September
to June. We conduct this program every year. Duration of the show is
about an hour. Light humour and drama is used to express the message
about sexual health issues in young people. The plays are conducted
school hours only and our coordinator will get in touch with your
school for the special permission.
Who is behind Insight?
Insight is coordinated by the
staff of Planned Parenthood Ottawa, who have been offering sex ed in
Ottawa for almost 50 years! The program is funded by Ottawa Public
Health, and we couldn’t be more grateful for their support.
