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.
