‘A bracingly clever, bleakly funny play offers no easy answers to any of its questions: what is justice, what is vengeance, and which is right?’
A play about rape, empathy and justice framed in a picture of domesticity. ‘Consent’ is a look into the private lives of lawyers and both their inter- and intra-marital tensions. Ever more relevant today in the #MeToo era, the discussion and treatment of rape is challenged through the dark humour and satire of Nina Raine’s fast-paced, marvellously intelligent writing.
