Jodie Comer’s (Killing Eve) Olivier and Tony Award-winning performance in Suzie Miller’s gripping one-woman play returns to Civic Cinema.

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.

Directed by Justin Martin and captured live in 2022 during a sold out run at the Harold Pinter Theatre in London’s West End, the recording has broken all records to become the most watched National Theatre Live of all time. 

The screening of this play may cause distress or trigger challenging emotions for some audience members as it includes reference to sensitive subject matter including violence and sexual assault.
