“West End debuts don’t come more astonishing than this solo tour de force by Jodie Comer.” —Daily Telegraph
“⭑⭑⭑⭑ An unforgettable moment of theatre.” —WhatsOnStage
Jodie Comer (Killing Eve) makes her West End debut in the UK premiere of Suzie Miller’s award-winning play.
Tessa is a young, brilliant barrister. She has worked her way up from working-class origins to be at the top of her game; defending; cross-examining and winning. An unexpected event forces her to confront the lines where the patriarchal power of the law, burden of proof and morals diverge.
Prima Facie takes us to the heart of where emotion and experience collide with the rules of the game. Justin Martin directs this solo tour de force, captured live from the intimate Harold Pinter Theatre in London’s West End.
Please note: This play includes sensitive subject matter including reference to sex, violence, and rape, which may cause distress or trigger challenging emotions for some audience members. Click here for more information.
