Our Review 4 / 5

Nina Raine’s blistering courtroom drama Consent transfers from the National Theatre for a run at the Harold Pinter Theatre in the West End. Tickets are available now.

Originally produced by the NT and Out of Joint, Consent is an account of marital betrayals between two couples, all of whom are lawyers. It centres on cases of alleged rape revolving around the consent – or lack of consent – of a woman.

Having premiered in the Dorfman at the National Theatre, it transferred to the West End in May 2018, with critic Mark Shenton saying the piece was “a high-stakes drama that really ups the ante of the West End to deal with contemporary life in all its brutal complexity”.

The production stars Clare Foster (Crazy for You), Stephen Campbell Moore (The History Boys), Claudie Blakley (Chimerica) and Adam James (King Charles III).

Nina Raine’s previous work for stage includes the plays Tribes, Longing and Jumpy.

Tickets for Consent, which runs at the Harold Pinter Theatre until August, are available now.

Our Review of Consent


The National Theatre continues its winning streak of transfers to the West End, which in the last nine months has already yielded the world premiere of David Eldridge's Beginning (which moved to the Ambassadors) and the British premiere of the Tony-winning play Oslo (which moved to the Pinter). Now comes Consent (again to the Pinter), Nina Raine's blistering account of the despair of marital betrayals. Played out amongst two sets of couples - all of whom are lawyers - it demonstrates,...

To call Nina Raine's muscular and probing Consent a courtroom drama threatens to suffocate the piece's inherent depth, which, thanks to its skilfully plotted narrative and careful character portraiture, encompasses much more than your standard crime thriller. For all the legalese and grandstanding about the world of barristers within which most of her characters operate, there's just one brief scene set within an actual courtroom. Read more
