    Rehearsals are in full swing for the West End production of Nina Raine’s Consent at the Harold Pinter Theatre

    Directed by Roger Michell and originally co-produced and commissioned by Out of Joint, this strictly limited 12-week run will start previews next week on 18 May 2018, following last year's critically acclaimed sold-out run at the National Theatre.

    The cast includes Claudie Blakley (Kitty), Stephen Campbell Moore (Edward), Sian Clifford (Rachel), Heather Craney (Gayle and Laura), Clare Foster (Zara), Lee Ingleby (Tim) and Adam James (Jake). The production features set by Hildegard Bechtler, costumes by Dinah Collin, lighting by Rick Fisher, music by Kate Whitley, sound by John Leonard and Sarah Weltman, with 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.

    Nina Raine’s other plays include Tiger Country, Rabbit and Tribes, as well as an adaptation of The Drunks by the Durnenkov Brothers. Tribes won the Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Play and the New York Drama Critics’ Circle Award for Best Foreign Play, and has been performed in eighteen different countries. She was also nominated for a Susan Blackburn Smith Award for Consent.

    Roger Michell’s many productions include Waste, Landscape with WeaponThe Homecoming and The Coup for the National Theatre, as well as Farewell to the Theatre, Tribes and My Night with Reg. His film credits include My Cousin RachelHyde Park on Hudson, Morning Glory and Notting Hill.
