Starting at 7 pm tonight are callbacks for the new play Consent at Spotlighters Theatre at 817 St Paul Street in Baltimore. Directed by Andre Tittle and produced by the Baltimore Playwrights Festival, the play will run August 16, 17, 18, 19 and 23, 24, 25, 26.
In a near, yet very changed, future, where civilians volunteer to undergo traumatic medical testing in exchange for “favors” from the government, two doctors find themselves on lockdown with their belligerent patient and are forced to confront the very nature of their work. Does the given consent absolve them of the horrors of their work? Is informed consent still consent if all you’ve done is make it impossible to say no?
