★★★★     TIME OUT - CRITIC’S CHOICE “The NYT plays a blinder with this slippery play about underage consent…a show that gets the brain pounding and blood pumping 

★★★★     EVENING STANDARD “A lesson in sassy subversion. Playwright Evan Placey’s NYT commission is juicily provocative.”

★★★★     WHAT’S ON STAGE “The NYT cast give a storming, nuanced ensemble performance and the show is more than a match for the best of the West End.”


Official London Theatre “Challenging, intense, thought-provoking and impeccably performed, the NYT shows the West End how it’s done in Evan Placey’s fresh, edgy drama”

Written by Evan Placey

Directed by Pia Furtado

"Think of Sexual Relationship Education as a war zone and you’re the journalist. Give the facts, show the photos, but don’t get too close unless you want your head blown off."

As Head of Year 11 Diane is meant to be implementing the new ‘Healthy Relationships’ curriculum. But then Freddie arrives. She hasn’t seen him since that night six years earlier when he was fifteen.

She thinks he took advantage of her. He thinks she groomed him for months. But neither is sure.

The National Youth Theatre presents an explosive and thought-provoking piece of new writing from Evan Placey (Writers’ Guild Award winner) exploring what happens when buried secrets catch up with you. But when it comes to sex and consent, are there really any blurred lines?
