A production from Empire Street Productions. Jodie Comer (Killing Eve) makes her West End debut in the UK premiere of Suzie Miller’s award-winning play. This play was so popular at the West End that playwright Suzie Miller could not get tickets towards the end of the run. Grab yours before the same happens here!
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.
“It’s a breathtaking performance. . . Miller’s script is uncannily skilled… brilliantly directed… everyone who sees it will find it unforgettable… This is a different kind of offering from National Theatre Live – a famous TV star with a visceral grasp of the spectacular nature of the emotional atrocity she’s delineating. Everyone will be taken aback by its rawness and its power.” Peter Craven THE AUSTRALIAN. Click HERE for full story
