Consent at the Harold Pinter Theatre Harold Pinter Theatre, 6 Panton Street, London, SW1Y 4DN
Following a sold out season at the National Theatre, Nina Raine’s ‘blistering new play’ (New York Times), CONSENT, directed by Roger Michell, makes a triumphant and timely transfer to the Harold Pinter Theatre.
Stephen Campbell Moore (Photograph 51, The History Boys), Claudie Blakley (Chimerica, Gosford Park), Heather Craney (The Vote) and Adam James (Dr Foster, Girl from the North Country) lead the cast in this ‘tense, entertaining modern-day tragi-comedy’ (Daily Telegraph).
Addressing universal concerns — justice, betrayal, revenge and forgiveness – Consent takes a searing look at the law whilst putting modern relationships into the dock.
Consent is booking from 18 May 2018 until 11 August 2018 at the Harold Pinter Theatre, London.
WHAT’S THE STORY?
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.

Powerful. One of Nina Raine’s most enjoyable and intelligent plays. Independent
Gutsy and supremely well performed. Anna Maxwell Martin is just superb. TimeOut
Intricately layered . Finely tuned. Fierce new play. Evening Standard
