Sorry, this show is not currently booking.

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.


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.


The cast features Claudie Blakley, Stephen Campbell Moore, Heather Craney, Clare Foster, Lee Ingleby, Thusitha Jayasundera and Adam James.


Directed by Roger Michell with set by Hildegard Bechtler, costumes by Dinah Collin, lighting by Rick Fisher, music by Kate Whitley and sound by John Leonard.

Written by Nina Raine.
