Eleanor Bishop & Karin McCracken
Originally commissioned by Auckland Live and produced by Zanetti Productions
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 confession, part documentary, part open conversation, YES YES YES is a theatre show created for young adults that explores the knotty and necessary topics of healthy relationships, desire and consent.
This latest work from award-winning duo Karin McCracken and Eleanor Bishop blends audience interaction with a captivating solo performance, and features in-depth interviews with teenagers from around Aotearoa.

“Funny, thoughtful and entirely relatable.” - NZ Herald
“Certainly hits its target as a sex-positive play about consent that parents can feel secure bringing their teenagers to.” - Theatrescenes
“If you have teens or not, def recommend YES YES YES...Asking questions about consent, it’s even more refined than its cousin JANE DOE, and it knows itself & its audience so well. Powerful, helpful work.” - Kate Prior, Pantograph Punch
