Autumn Theatre Season 2019
World premieres, Edinburgh transfers and returning Soho favourites - a new season of surprise and subversion.
As Head of Year 11, Diane is meant to be implementing the new ‘Healthy Relationships’ curriculum. But then Freddie arrives. She hasn’t seen him since that night six years earlier when he was fifteen.
She thinks he took advantage of her. He thinks she groomed him for months. Neither is sure. But when it comes to sex and consent, are there really any blurred lines?
The National Youth Theatre REP Company revives this explosive and thought-provoking critically acclaimed play by Evan Placey (Writers’ Guild Award winner) for the first time, dynamically directed again by Pia Furtado.
Evan Placey’s Consensual was commissioned by National Youth Theatre and premiered in 2015 at the Ambassadors Theatre in a NYT REP Company production directed by Pia Furtado.
Contains scenes of a sexual nature and strong language.
'The NYT plays a blinder with this slippery play about underage consent.'
'More than a match for the best of the West End.'
