"The show gives a 360-degree perspective on what people believe consent is, giving an often harrowing exploration as to how they imply it," director Amanda Crewes said. "Many were nervous to talk about it – Implied Consent presents challenging and diverse perspectives on where the line sits in such a grey area.
"We take this unvoiced issue and, through real people's stories, show how implying consent to the small things can spiral out of control. This insidious epidemic needs to be taken back to the basics of care, compassion and tolerance."
"The actors aim to give as accurate a representation of the interviewees as possible," Amanda said. "It's always a challenge to present the material in a way that is engaging, especially given the subject matter can get quite heavy at times.
"We want to do justice to all sides of the argument, so all the stories need to be told. But how do you tell the big stories delicately and the small ones richly without distorting the truth in any way?"
