National Theatre Live: Prima Facie


National Theatre Live: Prima Facie

Thursday 12 September 2024 - Friday 20 September 2024


Jodie Comer’s (Killing Eve) Olivier and Tony award-winning performance in Suzie Miller’s gripping one-women play, Prima Facie, returns to cinemas.

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 in 2022 during a sold out run at the Harold Pinter Theatre in London’s West End.

‘Jodie Comer’s brilliant West End debut is like a punch to the guts’, ‘West End debuts don’t come much more astonishing than this’ – The Telegraph ★★★★☆
