    David Robson always writes with the sharpest of nibs. In 'Without Consent' he provides two actors with rapiers to joust with in an incredibly pertinent and powerful piece of theatre. Dealing with a raft of issues in common currency David's dexterity with words provides every reader/viewer/listener with a catalogue of thoughts to take away and consider. A masterful piece of theatre and a real challenge for theatre makers.

    I've read most of David's plays, and produced two, and I think Without Consent represents some of his best writing. Two strong characters locked in a room with high stakes is always a winner for me, and Without Consent does not disappoint. Timely, incisive and easy to produce, with great roles for two powerhouse actresses.

    Thoughtful, with powerful female characters, Without Consent keeps you on the edge of your seat. Two women attempt to conceal their true intentions during a job interview. With surprising twists, this play illuminates the complex web surrounding victim, predator, and accomplice.
