Why is Justice blind? Is she impartial? Or is she blinkered?
Friends Ed and Tim take opposing briefs in a rape 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.
Consent, Nina Raine’s powerful, painful, funny play, sifts the evidence from every side and puts Justice herself in the dock. It premiered as a co-production between the National Theatre and Out of Joint, directed by Roger Michell at the National Theatre in 2017, and transferred to the West End in 2018. The production runs at the Harold Pinter Theatre until 11 August 2018, find out more here.
To celebrate the hit West End transfer, we've teamed up with our friends at Sonia Friedman Productions to offer one lucky winner the chance to receive a pair of tickets to Consent at the Harold Pinter Theatre, London (subject to availability), plus a copy of the playscript.
