In rehearsal: Consent

It’s a play truly for our times: Nina Raine’s Consent, which puts modern relationships on trial in a brilliant tragi-comedy, begins previews at the Harold Pinter Theatre next week.

Following a critically acclaimed run at the National Theatre last year, Consent sees friends take opposing briefs in a contentious legal case. But events soon cause their lives at home to unravel, and every version of the truth is challenged.

The Consent cast comprises Claudie Blakley (Kitty), Stephen Campbell Moore (Edward), Sian Clifford (Rachel), Heather Craney (Gayle and Laura), Clare Foster (Zara), Lee Ingleby (Tim) and Adam James (Jake) – and they’ve been hard at work in preparation for the eagerly anticipated opening night.

Directed by Roger Michell and originally co-produced and commissioned by Out of Joint, Consent plays a strictly limited 12-week run in the West End.

Nina Raine’s other plays include Tiger Country, Rabbit and Tribes as well as an adaptation of The Drunks by the Durnenkov Brothers. She was shortlisted for the 2004 Verity Bargate Award and awarded the 2006 Evening Standard and Critics’ Circle Awards for Most Promising Playwright for her debut play Rabbit.

We are so sorry that in these testing and difficult times you are not able to enjoy the show you have booked for and hope the following helps clarify next steps in respect of your tickets .

There is nothing that you need to do if your performance has been cancelled, but we do ask for your patience.
