About Prima Facie on Broadway Starring Jodie Comer

Tessa is a thoroughbred. 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.

Emmy Award winner Jodie Comer reprises her acclaimed performance from London in Prima Facie on Broadway. Set an alert for Prima Facie tickets on TodayTix.

The Prima Facie play is a one-woman legal drama in which Comer plays Tessa, a successful young defense lawyer. She loves the rush of winning a case, even though she knows many of her clients are guilty, and of undermining her opposition's weaknesses. That suddenly changes when she's the victim of an assault and takes her case to court. Suddenly, she has to reckon with her profession after seeing it from the other side, knowing she'll have a hard time winning her fight.

Prima Facie premiered in Sydney, Australia — playwright Suzie Miller's home country — in 2019, where it won multiple major awards. For its subsequent London premiere, Comer won the Evening Standard Award for Best Actress.

Comer is best known for her Emmy-winning performance as Villanelle on the TV show Killing Eve, and for her film appearances in Free Guy and The Last Duel.

What to Watch For

  • Comer made her West End debut in this play in London, and now she makes her Broadway debut with Prima Facie in New York.
  • "Prima facie" is a Latin phrase that means "at first glance" or "upon a first impression." In legal cases, it refers to an allegation or assertion that's accepted as correct until proven otherwise.
  • Miller used to be a criminal defense lawyer in Australia, and her encounters with sexual assault survivors inspired her to write Prima Facie.
  • Prima Facie isn't Miller's only law drama. She also wrote RBG: Of Many, One, about the late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. That show premiered in Australia just after Prima Facie went up in London.
  • While Prima Facie is running, it will be one of three shows on Broadway about the legal system; Chicago and Parade are others. Those two are musicals, though, while Prima Facie is a play.
  • Prima Facie has a companion soundtrack available to stream, with all tracks written and performed by the musician Self Esteem.
