What would you do for a million dollars? What would you do for someone you love? Can we ever be certain that we'll NEVER do something like have sex for money or career advancement? Thorne & his wife Fleur find themselves in a modern day twist of the Indecent Proposal scenario. Yes, people are being targeted by sexual predators, but what about the people who consciously use sex to get ahead? "Yes. No. Maybe." examines the moral implications of the ways in which we all prostitute ourselves to advance our careers, improve our bank balances, stay in power, keep a roof over our heads, or get whatever it is we feel we 'need' to survive, be happy or feel validated. We've all done things we regret, but what if you had a million dollars for each of those things you did that you regret? And if you were rich enough to buy anything, what's more enticing than something that money can't buy?

"Yes. No. Maybe." is a dramedy of manners for an adult audience unafraid to consider the possibility that their morals may not be as set in stone as they'd like to believe...

Comedy, drama and a splash of contemporary dance merge to create a unique theatrical experience.

"It’s a well-crafted script with depth and humor, deftly directed by Suttle? (no program credit is given) with strong performances by the quartet of actors. Yes.No.Maybe. may pose or answer a few questions for its audience."

"An intriguing little dramady that explores boundaries in more ways than one. The show has a lot to say, and it says so very wittily and with superb acting - and without battering the audience over the head with the message stick. All four performers are excellently cast. They all have fully realized inner lives and solid senses of comedic timing. For the most part, the play is naturalistic, but there occasional breaks into something a little more abstract that I really enjoy, like in the way sex scenes are handled. Each character also gives a monologue to the audience that sums up a unique part of their character. So much about the situation these characters find themselves in is fraught. It begs questions about the ethical conduct of those in power, but also about those who consentingly(?) choose to sleep to the top. There are a lot of questions raised and no real answers given. It's all left up for the audience to come to their own conclusions without firm judgment cast down on any one character. Everyone behaves in a flawed manner... but also behaves generously. The gray areas will leave you scratching your head for days. And did I mention it's really funny? The dialogue is full of witticisms and one-liners that you'll wish you thought of. There is a survey given before they show. I'm curious to see what will be done with it. I know the dialogue is quick and quippy, but occasionally a line was spoken so quickly that I didn't know what was said. The introduction of the main couple, while funny, didn't quite work for me. Maybe it's because I hate the game of rhetorical impossible questions. Actually, it's probably more that they both initially come off as unlikeable and I grew to like them as the story went on. I wanted to be in at least one of their courts at the outset. These are minor quibbles. The show succeeded in what it set out to do and is enjoyable and provocative the whole way through."
