What is Prima Facie about?

Tessa is a thoroughbred. A young, brilliant barrister who loves to win. She has worked her way up from working class origins to be at the top of her game; prosecuting; cross examining and lighting up the shadows of doubt in any case. An unexpected event forces her to confront the lines where the patriarchal power of the law, burden of proof and morals diverge.

Who is in the Prima Facie London cast?

Jodie Comer will play Tessa in this gripping, one-person play which takes us to the heart of where emotion and experience collide with the rules of the game.

Emmy and BAFTA-winning actress, Jodie Comer, is best known for her starring roles in Killing Eve, Free Guy, The White Princess, Thirteen and Doctor Foster. Jodie first rose to prominence in E4’s BAFTA and International Emmy Award nominated British comedy-drama series My Mad Fat Diary.

Creative team

Written by Suzie Miller, a contemporary international playwright and screenwriter drawn to complex human stories often exploring injustice; with direction by Justin Martin, set & costume design by Miriam Buether and lighting by Natasha Chivers.
