'The show that we're about to do is a story of the future. The story we're going to tell is the story of us. I'm going to tell you this now: it doesn't have a happy end.'

Critically acllaimed company YESYESNONO brings an act of communal storytelling. A hopeful, hopeless prophecy for earth and humankind. A story of us, our future, of paradise and how we get there in the end.

A lone performer tells the story of the future of the audience; what's going to happen to them in the decades, centuries, millenia after the end of this show. It's the story of a baby born in a lighthouse, of someone on fire in the middle of the desert, of two lovers reunited in a flooded city, of a spaceship on the edge of a black hole. Everything has already been decided. This is the story of the end.

Warning: the show includes scenes with flashing lights

YESYESNONO have produced another work of theatrical magic.


In de media

"It’s an apocalyptic, strange hour of theatre that makes you feel grateful to be alive, grateful to be part of a communal gathering of people."

"A truly captivating presence, Ward oscillates between a best friend, an executive life coach, and a preacher."

"Ward creates a sense of joyful collective enterprise, his lyrical script gently prodding us to take ownership of the choices we make and, perhaps, accept some responsibility for our future."

"YESYESNONO have produced another work of theatrical magic."


Winners of the Total Theatre Award for Emerging Artist 2017, YESYESNONO is concerned with exploring the potential of theatre as a democratic space and exploring what that space might look like.
