Comer plays Tessa in the one-person play, which follows a working-class barrister at the top of her game. She is emotionally and professionally flawed when a sexual assault leaves her navigating the patriarchal criminal justice system she has worked tirelessly to uphold.
Prima Facie is showing at the Harold Pinter from Friday 15 April – Saturday 18 June 2022, with Justin Martin directing. Martin’s recent credits include working with Stephen Daldry on his critically acclaimed BBC film Together, his Obie-winning play The Jungle (plus its film equivalent currently in development), and The Walk, an ongoing international project in which a giant puppet of a Syrian refugee is travelling from the Syrian border to Manchester (stopping in London this October), meeting arts organisations in a number of cities along the way.
Miller is known for her works exploring complex human stories and injustice. Prima Facie premiered at the Griffin Theatre in Sydney in 2019, winning a trio of prestigious awards the following year, including the 2020 Australian Writers’ Guild Award across all categories of theatre, film, and television.
In a landmark move towards making live theatre more accessible, a number of pay-what-you-can tickets to Prima Facie are being made available for every performance of the limited nine-week run.
