Jodie Comer makes her West End stage debut in Australian Suzie Miller’s award-winning play - a gripping, empathetic look at how the law routinely fails victims of sexual assault.

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.

Tessa is played by Jodie Comer, who received worldwide praise and attention for her starring role as Villanelle in the BBC America thriller Killing Eve.

Justin Martin directs this solo tour de force, captured live from the intimate Harold Pinter Theatre in London’s West End.
