Presented by YESYESNONO

YESYESNONO present their Award-winning production of 5 Encounters on a Site Called Craigslist.

Sam wants to tell you about five encounters he had on a site called Craigslist. Sam is anxious about the way he gets to know people. About the way he self-sabotages his attempts to communicate and reach out to those around him. Sam wants this to be a chance for you to get to know him.

5 Encounters on a Site Called Craigslist is a solo show performed by one person. One person who needs an audience to tell his story. It’s a show that, in exploring this one person’s self-sabotaged attempts to know those around him, considers the extent to which a group of people in a darkened room can ever get to know each other.

Desperately hilarious and achingly bleak, 5 Encounters… is an intricate and tender question mark around our attempts to encounter each other in this technologized world.


“Entertaining and thoughtfully constructed… A moving and bittersweet experience.”
– Lyn Gardner, The Guardian

★★★★★ “visionary, purposive and unpretentious.” – Three Weeks
