NT Live Prima Facie | Tickets £15.50 | Conc. £13.50 | Recorded Screening | Theatre
Jodie Comer (Killing Eve) makes her West End debut in the UK premiere of Suzie Miller’s award-winning play, Prima Facie. 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 is a production from Empire Street Productions which 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.
“Jodie Comer’s West End stage debut is a baptism of fire by any standards … Prima Facie’s final messages are urgent in highlighting who our laws fail to protect. If they are delivered in hammer blows, there is power in hearing them spoken on a West End stage, and Comer manages to infuse breath-taking emotional drama in every last word.” – Arifa Akbar, The Guardian
As much as we don’t want to give away any ‘spoilers’, we recognize that this play can cause distress or trigger challenging emotions for some of our audience members. Please contact the Harold Pinter Theatre before you book if there are themes that are particularly upsetting to you and you want to discuss the production further.
