"Consent" by Nina Raine tells the story of two lawyers, Ed and Tim, who are opposing each other on a rape case. The play follows them in and out of the courtroom as the drama soon spills out into their own marriages.

Raine leaves us questioning, what is consent, how can we define it? Who will defend those who truly need defending?
