Prima Facie

Production Company: National Theatre Live
Venue: The Corn Hall
Thursday 13th October, 7pm

Jodie Comer (Killing Eve)
makes her West End debut in the UK premiere of Suzie Miller’s award-winning play Prima Facie which played to packed houses after receiving ecstatic reviews and has since become the most successful 'event cinema' release of all time in the UK & Ireland, surpassing the box office record set by Fleabag in 2019.

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.
