A Different Kind of Job by Jessica Anderson
A naive teenager takes the term "oral sex" a little too literally and ends up causing injury to her boyfriend. After this interlude that has gone horribly wrong a new, young male teacher at a Conservative Catholic school ends up providing forbidden sex education to the girl who caused the injury. The play explores the fallout of this instruction and the ensuing results on the students, the teachers and the community. A Different Kind of Job explores the complications in how we evaluate pushing boundaries or just plain crossing the line.
