The Age of Consent Summary


The Age of Consent by Peter Morris

Condemned by the mother of Jamie Bulger and acclaimed by the critics - for tackling the subject of child killers - this is the controversial new play from the winner of the Sunday Times Playwriting Prize 2001 Few kids have a secret as chilling as Timmy's. Stephanie loves Raquel to death. Acutely topical, darkly satirical and brutally uncompromising - these two monologues explore the shattering of childhood innocence. "The play opens up a moral minefield. Who can, or should, consent to what? Can anyone consent to something on the behalf of another? What power can anyone, a person or a community, have over the mind and life of another? Morris's play sends you out in a state of moral turbulence." (John Peter, Sunday Times)"For once, the play at the eye of an Edinburgh storm is a good one" - Guardian "This 70-minute play would alone have been worth a trip to Edinburgh" - Sunday Times "If The Age of Consent had been written by the sainted Alan Bennett it would be acclaimed as a triumph" - Daily Telegraph The Age of Consent is published to tie in with its London premiere at the Bush Theatre in January 2002
