Consent

1 - 24 Jun 2023

Why is Justice blind? Is she impartial? Or is she blinkered?

After sell-out success at London’s National Theatre and a smash-hit West End run, Nina Raine’s acclaimed play, Consent, makes its Australian premiere.  

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, the barristers’ own lives unravel in a frenzy of betrayals and recrimination.  

Brought to the stage by the award-winning Outhouse Theatre Co (Ulster AmericanHeroes of the Fourth Turning, The Flick), this intricately constructed drama pings with questions of consent not just sexual but personal, probing the murky moral terrain of the courtroom and the marriage bed, and putting Justice herself in the dock.

Also known for her extraordinary 2010 play, Tribes, Raine’s Consent is rich with ideas and theatrical ingenuity. Experience a work of sparkling intelligence, wit, and power, that "elevates its writer into the major league of British playwrights" (Variety).
