“Lively, sparky and ballsy as heck… gets the brain pounding and the blood pumping.” —Time Out
An explosive and thought-provoking play from the author of Girls Like That, exploring what happens when buried secrets catch up with you.
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, how far can you blur the lines?
Evan Placey's Consensual was first performed by the National Youth Theatre in their 2015 West End season.
Evan Placey is a Canadian-British playwright. His other work includes Girls Like That, Mother of Him and Holloway Jones, which won the Brian Way Award for Best Play for Young People, and Pronoun, commissioned as part of the 2014 National Theatre Connections Festival.
