Yes Yes Yes is a theatre show for New Zealand senior secondary students about sex, consent and fostering healthy behaviours in relationships.
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 New Zealand, in response to overwhelming feedback to Jane Doe in Auckland and at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in 2017.
Yes Yes Yes aligns with best practice sexual assault prevention education in New Zealand, and was developed in consultation with Rape Prevention Education in Auckland, NZ.
