About NT Live: Prima Facie

Jodie Comer’s Olivier and Tony Award-winning performance in Suzie Miller’s gripping one-woman play returns to cinemas this autumn.

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.

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.

Please note that the Sunday 15 and Sunday 29 Sep screenings include descriptive subtitles.

All NT Live screenings have minimal advertising, so please arrive in good time.
