For Schools: YES YES YES

No longer available

Herald Theatre, Aotea Centre


We regret to announce that the upcoming seasons of Yes Yes Yes has been postponed for now.

This decision has been made due to the Covid-19 outbreak and the need to eliminate the risk of spread of the virus within Aotearoa. Whilst we are disappointed, the health, safety and well-being of all who attend our shows is paramount.

At present the August season of Desperate Late Night Energy and the October season of A Boy Called Piano have not been postponed so schools can still make tentative bookings by clicking ‘Book Now’ under Tickets & Times on the respective show pages.

We look forward to once again seeing Secondary School students at our shows and venues in the hopefully not too distant future.


Ari and Jamie 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 that explores the knotty and necessary topics of healthy relationships, desire and consent.

Returning in 2020 following a successful 2019 tour, this 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.

Yes Yes Yes is an essential conversation starter for teenagers, parents, teachers and anyone seeking to create positive change in the lives of our rangatahi.

With thanks to Rape Prevention Education for their guidance and support.
