Synopsis

Jamie and Ari like each other. Karin and Tom do too. 😊

They might be at two separate parties, but their stories are identical.

Until they really aren’t.

Part documentary, part confession, part open conversation, Yes, Yes, Yes is a theatre show created specifically for young adults exploring the knotty and necessary topics of healthy relationships, desire and consent.

Blending audience interaction with captivating solo performance, this work features in-depth interviews with Australian teenagers.

“…funny, thoughtful and entirely relatable….I can’t recommend this highly enough; it should be. 

A must for teens and their caregivers.” NZ Herald
