News   The Murky Waters of Sexual Consent Explored in New Play by David Rhodes
 
A new work written and directed by David Rhodes, titled Consent, is set to begin performances Off-Broadway June 2. The play follows the life of former NFL player Ron, who has recently come out as gay and finds himself in a risky new relationship with a young law student.

An official opening night is set for June 11.

Here's how the show is billed: "Consent follows Ron Sullivan, living the American dream. A natural athlete and former NFL football player, Ron achieved early success as an award-winning architect. But recently he's made some changes. Ron came out as gay, separated from his high school sweetheart, and moved into a Soho loft. Now a chance encounter with Kurt, a sexy Yale law student, seduces him into the murky waters of consent. Neither man, nor the two most important women in Ron’s life, will ever be the same."

The cast features Catherine Curtin (“Orange Is The New Black”), Michael Goldstein (Belgrade Trilogy), Angela Pierce (“You Don’t Know Jack”) and Mark McCullough Thomas (Our Lady of 121st Street).

Writer and director Rhodes says his goal is to "explore issues surrounding primal desire, vulnerability, passion and shame."

The production features scenic design by Scott Tedmon-Jones, costume design by Izzy Fields, lighting design by John Eckert, sound design by Chad Raines, video design by Chelsie McPhilimy and props by Addison Herren. Casting is by Callieri Casting. For more information and to purchase tickets visit ConsentThePlay.
