Following a smash-hit West End run, Nina Raine’s dazzlingly clever play about truth, justice and consent will be brought to Seymour Centre for its Australian premiere by the award-winning Outhouse Theatre Co. from 1st to 24th June.

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

Barrister friends, Ed and Tim, take opposing briefs in a rape case. At home, their own lives begin to unravel as accusations are made, truths are challenged, and judgements imposed.

A 2023 Seymour Season Production, this intricately constructed play pings with questions of consent not just sexual but personal, probing the murky moral terrain of the courtroom and the marriage bed, and putting Justice herself in the dock. 

Known for her extraordinary 2010 play, Tribes, Raine’s Consent is rich with intelligence, wit and power and “elevates its writer into the major league of British playwrights" (Variety).
