CONSENSUAL

BY EVAN PLACEY

14 MARCH – 15 APRIL

“Give the facts, show the photos, but don’t get too close unless you want your head blown off”

As Head of Year 11, Diane is meant to be implementing the new ‘Healthy Relationships’ curriculum. She’s responsible for guiding these impressionable teenagers through the minefield that is ‘sex education’.

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 that she groomed him for months. Neither is sure. But when it comes to sex and consent, how far can you blur the lines?

An explosive and thought-provoking play from one of Britain’s most exciting new voices, exploring what happens when buried secrets catch up with you.
