It has been announced that the National Theatre and Sonia Friedman Productions will bring Nina Rayne’s play to the Harold Pinter Theatre from the 18th May. 

Consent

Having first run at the National Theatre’s Dorfman Theatre in 2017, the production was originally commissioned and co-produced by Out of Joint and will now play for a limited run at the Harold Pinter 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.

Consent is directed by Roger Mitchell, whose previous credits include directing Waste at the National Theatre. Meanwhile, the production features a set by Hildegard Bechtler, costumes by Dinah Collin, lighting by Rick Fisher, music by Kate Whitely and sound design by John Leonard.

The cast is set to include Claudie Blakley, Stephen Campbell Moore, Heather Craney and Adam James with additional casting yet to be announced.

Nina Raine’s previous work includes  Tiger Country, Tribes and Rabbit for which she won the 2006 Evening Standard and Critics’ Circle Awards for Most Promising Playwright.

Consent will play at the Harold Pinter Theatre from the 18th May until the 11th August. To book tickets click here or visit: Ticketmaster.co.uk, Encore Tickets, ATG Tickets or Love Theatre.com
