National Theatre Live: Prima Facie Storyline

Tessa is a thoroughbred. A young, brilliant barrister who loves to win.

An unexpected event forces her to confront the lines where the patriarchal power of the law, burden of proof and morals diverge. Jodie Comer makes her West End Debut in the UK premiere of Suzie Miller’s award-winning, gripping play PRIMA FACIE which takes us to the heart of where emotion and experience collide with the rules of the game. Justin Martin directs this solo actor tour de force at the intimate Harold Pinter Theatre for a strictly limited season.

National Theatre Live: Prima Facie Movie Reviews

Absolutely Jaw-dropping

Jodie Comer’s performance is stunning, captivating and Oscar worthy. Though it is a one woman show, she switches between so many characters with such ease and class that is suspends the audience’s disbelief fully. There was not a dry eye in the entire cinema by the end and I’ve personally still not fully processed just how hard hitting and emotional the message of Prima Facie is.

In Tessa’s words, ‘in the face of it, something has to change’. And it does. I cannot recommend watching it enough.


Jodie Comer’s talent is preternatural. I don’t think the industry is even ready for it ?. Olivier Award must be pending at this point with Tony Award on the cards and Jodie Comer deserves it all. The play was just as brilliant on the silver screen, the editing and direction for camera on point and I was probably even more stunned this time round. Emotive, visceral, poignant, chastening, fearless, faultless, mesmerising, vivid, vigorous, breathtaking because well Jodie Comer. All stars have aligned with this play; production, set design, music composition, and are revolving around Jodie. The impact it’s having, and in particular on the 1 in 3, is profound. It’s probably the single most important piece of art produced in theatre for some time. Broadway has no excuse to not to be enamoured with it when it heads there.

So Powerful.

Jodie Comer is absolutely fantastic in this role. Truly one of the best acting performances I have ever seen.

The plot is powerful and will resonate deeply with a lot of women. I would gobao far as to say this should be required viewing for everyone.
