National Theatre Live 2022
by Suzie Miller
directed by Justin Martin
Captured live from the Harold Pinter Theatre in London.
Jodie Comer (Killing Eve) makes a critically acclaimed West End debut in the UK premiere of Suzie Miller’s award-winning, one-women, 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.
Please note: “Prima Facie” features sensitive subject matter which may cause distress or trigger challenging emotions for some viewers, including references to sex, violence, and assault.
