Written in 2015, Evan Placey’s Consensual revolves around a British secondary school’s teacher and Head of Year 11 Diane, and a mistake she made seven years earlier: she got too close to one of her unhappy 15-year-old pupils. Though we see both of their stories, in the first half we’re never sure what truly happened. Although we finally see what really happened, who is right and who is wrong is not clear cut. At one point Diane says, “Think of Sexual Relationship Education as a war zone and you’re the journalist. Give the facts, show the photos, but don’t get too close unless you want your head blown off.”

Content Warning:
In order for folks to have the best possible experience, we want to acknowledge the following: Consensual contains scenes of sexual content, intimacy and violence. We want to let you know that some of this material might be challenging in different ways to different people and communities, and that some of the scenes can be uncomfortable or harder for some folks to process.

Land Acknowledgement:
We acknowledge that Consensual is produced, rehearsed and presented on the unceded territory of the Musqueam, Squamish, and Tsleil-Waututh First Nations.
