Nina Raine’s Consent has now opened at the Harold Pinter after completing the 2017 critically acclaimed sell-out run at the Dorfman Theatre. Directed by Roger Michell and originally co-produced and commissioned by Out of Joint, Consent is at the Harold Pinter Theatre until 11 August for a strictly limited 12-week run. 

The cast includes Claudie Blakley, Stephen Campbell Moore, Heather Craney and Adam James with further casting to be announced. Set is by Hildegard Bechtler, with costumes by Dinah Collin, lighting by Rick Fisher, music by Kate Whitley, sound by John Leonard and casting by Amy Ball CDG.

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.

This ‘tense, entertaining modern-day tragi-comedy’ (Daily Telegraph) takes a searing look at the law whilst putting modern relationships into the dock.

Sue Green12th August

I really enjoyed the play, because we changed seats once it started. one of the seats the view was very limited the other wasn't both cost the same this didn't seem right.

irene morgan11th August

Brillant ,clever and funny play that keep you thinking and questioning on difficult subjects : truth, lies, interpretations, pain, revanche, justice . Fantastic performances ! I really enjoyed it .

Meg Nutt9th August

This is an extraordinary piece of writing - my first experience of Nina Raine's work and I was blown away! Superb direction - emotionally real performances by all the actors - crisp and ingenious scene changes. The serious plot lines were injected with humour, rawness and poignancy - beautifully balanced. I would say that this is a play which MUST be seen.

Martin Concannon9th August

Really enjoyed Consent for the second time, came down from Manchester (worth the journey, thought provoking stuff..

Elizabeth Sutherland9th August

Extremely thought provoking and powerful. Well acted and entertaining. Left theatre with all kinds of thoughts buzzing around my head which in my book means a good visit to the West End!

Joanne Dorning3rd August

Very raw, real and relatable. The actors were excellent and really portrayed a whole spectrum of emotions in a very believable way. Many of the situations brought back memories from my own life. Very enjoyable!

Keith Hawes2nd August

Good play, awful seat. Absolutely impossible to sit as the leg room was insufficient

Roy Swanston2nd August

A very interesting play about an equally challenging subject; however, i'm not sure it required the constant use of such bad language.

Sarla Malde26th July

comfortable theatre and seats. helpful staff. The theme was excellent. Acting was fairly mediocre. some good one liners. The over use of 'f' word completely spoiled the enjoyment.Found that to be quite an insult to the intelligence of the audience.That was serious poverty of language. Sarla

Balaka Fell-Holden26th July

Powerful story, very relevant for our times. Well acted although some of the female voices did not carry very well and it was difficult to hear them.

Very emotionally charged, great plot development and sub texts
