It is said that the contemporary British playwright Nina Raine inherited her talent from her father - contemporary British poet Craig Raine and her uncle - the outstanding Russian poet and novelist Boris Pasternak, who received the Nobel Prize for Literature. Nina Raine’s latest work “Consent” tells the story of a successful couple in their thirties - book editor Kitty and her husband Edward, a promising attorney. The arrival of their baby brings the couple closer together. But soon the fragile idyll of the couple's life is threatened by the unresolved relationship crisis of their close friends - lawyers Rachel and Jake - who outwardly appear to be the perfect family. The relationship between Kitty and Edward starts to shift when they, together with their friend Tim, a prosecutor, try to fix their friend's relationship crisis. Kitty also starts to question Edward’s moral standards when she learns that one of his criminal cases appears to result in a miscarriage of justice for the victim. Kitty starts to highlight long-hidden events of the past in order to incriminate the perpetrators and obtain redress, but the line between victim and abuser is not as clear as it might seem at first.
