Why is Justice blind?

Is she impartial?

Or is she blinkered?

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, their own lives begin to unravel as every version of the truth is challenged.

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

It premiered as a co-production between the National Theatre and Out of Joint, directed by Roger Michell at the National Theatre in 2017.
