An explosive and thought-provoking play from the author of Girls Like That, exploring what happens when buried secrets catch up with you.

As Head of Year 11, Diane is meant to be implementing the new 'Healthy Relationships' curriculum. But then Freddie arrives. She hasn't seen him since that night six years earlier when he was fifteen.

She thinks he took advantage of her. He thinks she groomed him for months. Neither is sure. But when it comes to sex and consent, how far can you blur the lines?

Evan Placey's Consensual was first performed by the National Youth Theatre in their 2015 West End season.

‘Think of Sexual Relationship Education as a war zone and you’re the journalist. Give the facts, show the photos, but don’t get too close unless you want your head blown off.’

Press Quotes

'Consensual is designed to shake your moral compass to its core... Evan Placey's intelligent, gripping new play about a pupil-teacher relationship offers a 360 degree view of a situation that most of us only read about in one-dimensional headlines... The fierce, funny classroom banter and sharp put downs, give the piece its heart and mind... [a] compelling play for our times'


'Lively, sparky and ballsy as heck… gets the brain pounding and the blood pumping'
