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

Nina Raine’s powerful, painful, funny play sifts the evidence from every side and puts justice herself in the dock.

Consent received its world premiere in a co-production with Out of Joint at the National Theatre in April 2017.
