Consent, the most blistering New Play of the Year!
Nina Raine’s ‘blistering new play’ (New York Times), directed by Roger Michell, makes a triumphant and timely transfer to the Harold Pinter Theatre this May, following a sold out season at the National Theatre.
Why is Justice blind? Is she impartial? Or is she blinkered? Friends take opposing briefs in a contentious legal case. The key witness is a woman whose life seems a world away from theirs. At home, their own lives begin to unravel as every version of the truth is challenged.
Described as a ‘tense, entertaining modern-day tragi-comedy’ by the Daily Telegraph, the production takes a searing look at the law whilst putting modern relationships into the dock.
Production running time: 2hours 30mins (inc. interval)
