Ie Ie Ie

Two pairs of young people fancy each other. Their stories are almost identical. Until they’re really not.

★★★★ "Theatr Genedlaethol Cymru has given us hope for a better theatrical future for Wales, and now it’s giving us hope for a more empathetic and kind one too." Buzz Magazine

"Gogoneddus oedd clywed pobl ifanc yn siarad yn groyw... yn ddewr a gyda gonestrwydd." BBC Radio Cymru

"[Eleri Morgan is] a warm and empathetic performer" The Welsh Agenda 

---  

Two young people have a crush on each other. Another two fancy each other as well.

Their stories are almost identical.

Until they’re really not.

--- 

Ie Ie Ie is an important piece of theatre about the real lived experiences of young people today.

Featuring a gripping solo performance by comedian Eleri Morgan and honest interviews with young Welsh people, Ie Ie Ie aims to change the narrative around consent.

In a performance that feels like an open conversation, Ie Ie Ie explores healthy relationships, lust and consent in a mindful, heartfelt and playful way. 

Embracing the power of live performance, Ie Ie Ie leads us to think deeply about ourselves and our relationships with others and encourages the audience to respond and participate during the show.

Directed by Juliette Manon, Ie Ie Ie is a Welsh adaptation of Yes Yes Yes; an award-winning show from Aotearoa/New Zealand-based theatre makers Karin McCracken and Eleanor Bishop.

Bilingual captions are available at every performance.
