Why See Consensual?

Examining the issue of sexual consent - and trust

With public discourse taking off recently regarding issues of sexual consent, this timely offering by the National Youth Theatre seeks to explore just that. The action takes place in a school classroom where the Head of Year 11 is about to start a class on Healthy Relationships with her students. However, a spanner is thrown into the works when Freddie, one of her former students reappears after six years - and both of them have questions about what happened that night when he was 15. A thought-provoking piece by Evan Placey that is sure to continue the charged discussion around sex education, directed by Pia Furtado.

What is it about?

When Diane, the head of year 11 is about to start teaching her class on sex education, little does she know that a face from her past is about to unearth one of her most troubling secrets. Freddie, one of her former pupils reappears, and he has a question for her. For when he was 15 years old, he and Diane had sex. He underage, she, abusing her position of trust. However, he firmly believes she was grooming him for months, whilst she believes that he seduced her. This play examines sexual consent and the student-teacher relationship, and why the lines have often been blurred and crossed.
