The National Theatre’s production of Consent will transfer to the West End later this year for a run at the Harold Pinter Theatre.

The new play by Nine Raine ran in the NT’s Dorfman last year and will return with a revised cast for the West End run, which begins on May 18.

Claudie Blakey and Stephen Campbell Moore will join the cast, with original company members Heather Craney and Adam James returning. Further casting is to be announced.

Consent is directed by Roger Michell, with design by Hildegard Bechtler, costumes by Dinah Collin, lighting by Rick Fisher and sound by John Leonard.

Music is by Kate Whitley and casting is by Amy Ball.

The production runs at the Harold Pinter until August 11, with press night on May 29.

It is produced in the West End by the National Theatre and Sonia Friedman Productions.
