Opening Night: Consent

Robin Johnson

By Robin Johnson Published 1 June 2018

The word “topical” doesn’t quite cover it. Nina Raine’s brilliant, spellbinding new play Consent opened at the Harold Pinter Theatre this week – and we were there to chat to the cast.

A searing exposé of the legal system – and its frightening ramifications – Consent makes its West End switch from an acclaimed run at the National Theatre. Its cast includes the likes of Claudie Blakley (Chimerica, Almeida/West End) and Stephen Campbell Moore (The History Boys, West End/Broadway/Film).

After enjoying a standing ovation at the opening night performance, the cast told us in their own words why Consent is vital viewing in the modern climate.

Playwright Nina Raine’s previous acclaimed works include the Olivier Award-nominated play Tribes, and plays including Tiger Country and Rabbit. Her new play Consent was originally co-produced and commissioned by Out of Joint, and begins previews in the West End from 18 May for a strictly limited 12-week run.

By turns powerful, painful and funny, Consent sifts evidence from every side to explore themes of justice, consent, marriage and modern parenthood – themes which resound strikingly today. Don’t miss it.
