5 Encounters on a Site Called Craigslist

Tue 13th Feb - Sat 17th Feb 2018

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.

‘Genuine human honesty makes it so special.’ 730 REVIEW

‘If it wasn’t so carefully put together it might be seen as exploitative, but on the night I saw it the gracious openness of the audience and their willingness to expose themselves made this a moving and bittersweet experience.’ LYN GARDNER
