REVIEWS

“I’ve read most of David’s plays, and produced two, and I think Without Consent represents some of his best writing. Two strong characters locked in a room with high stakes is always a winner for me, and Without Consent does not disappoint. Timely, incisive and easy to produce, with great roles for two powerhouse actresses.”–Seth Rozin, Producing Artistic Director, InterAct Theatre Company

“David Robson’s Without Consent is a powerful drama for two wonderful females that leaves you feeling breathless.  What starts out as what appears to be an innocent job interview turns into a shocking climax that no one sees coming.  Audiences gasped during our reading of the play.”–Bud Martin, Executive Director, Delaware Theatre Company
