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.
‘Would someone like to join me up onstage?’
Five Encounters On A Site Called Craigslist is a 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.

“A beautiful piece, the kind of theatre that is visionary, purposive and unpretentious.”

YESYESNONO is a new, Manchester-based company concerned with exploring the potential of theatre as a democratic space. A space where real experiences are expressed through unreal means. A space in which conventional artistic hierarchies are challenged and audience and artist work together to better understand our world.
