Killing Eve star Jodie Comer is the draw, but Suzie Miller’s one woman play sounds very promising too. It focusses on Tessa, a successful barrister who has fought her way to the top of her profession and has used all her skill to win cases, including defending men accused of sexual assault. But then Tessa herself is assaulted and she discovers how slippery justice can be. The run sold out when it was originally announced, but there is a daily lottery and as often turns out to be the case with apparently sold out shows it could well be that more tickets are released. Good to see the West End giving this subject airing, particularly at a time in the UK when police forces are reporting the highest number of sexual offences and rapes on record but the rape prosecution figure has fallen to just 1.3% of reported cases.

About Prima Facie

Prima Facie follows Tessa, a brilliant young barrister. She has worked her way from working-class, up to top of her game; she prosecutes, cross-examines and wins. Tessa then finds her life unravelling after a sexual assault. About Jodie Comer: Emmy and BAFTA Award-winner Jodie Comer is best known for starring in the TV show Killing Eve. She has also recently starred in Free Guy alongside Ryan Reynolds, and is now making her West End stage debut in Suzie Miller's heartbreaking one-person play, directed by Justin Martin. Playing at the Harold Pinter Theatre for a limited 9-week run in Spring 2022. It's expected to sell out fast, so book your tickets early!
