    Are We There Yet? is a funny, participatory play and workshop about sexuality health education for fourteen- to sixteen-year-olds. The play draws a parallel between mastering driving skills and negotiating relationships, and humorously opens a dialogue about sexuality. As teens watch and advise characters on stage, they feel as safe and free to talk about sexuality and relationship issues as they do about learning how to parallel park.
