YES YES YES
A theatre show for 16 - 18 year olds about the stuff that matters - consent, sex, identifying unhealthy behaviours in our relationships, and fostering healthy ones.
Jane and Josh like each other. Karin and Tom do too. They might be at two separate parties, but their stories are identical. Until something happens, and they really aren’t.
Part confession, part documentary and part open conversation, Yes Yes Yes explores the knotty but necessary topics of healthy relationships, desire and consent. Audience interaction is blended with a captivating solo stage performance, with screens around the stage telling the stories of teenagers around Aotearoa.
An essential conversation starter for teenagers, parents, teachers and anyone seeking to create positive change in the lives of our rangatahi.
Crafted by Eleanor Bishop (Boys, Mrs. Warren’s Profession) and Karin McCracken (Jane Doe, Body Double) in cahoots with students from Epsom Girls Grammar School, Papakura High School and Rape Prevention Education, Yes Yes Yes is a theatre show for 16 - 18 year olds about the stuff that matters - consent, sex, identifying unhealthy behaviours in our relationships, and fostering healthy ones.
Based on Eleanor and Karin’s production Jane Doe, which examined rape culture and consent, Yes Yes Yes has been created specifically with, and for, Year 12 and 13 students, in response to overwhelming feedback to Jane Doe in Auckland and at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival last year.
Shows are often followed by a 30-minute post show forum with the co-creators and a recommended sexual violence educator.
