Theatre Yes produces diverse artistic events that surprise, challenge and empower audiences. Theatre Yes creates access points to national and international cultural conversations via the production of unique and challenging works from Canada and the world. We value honour art and artists as forces of change, working to provoke greater insights and dialogue concerning our complex lives and world.

No other company reaches the same degree of confrontation and challenge for both themselves and their audience.
