Prima Facie

By Suzie Miller
Imprint: Nick Hern Books
Paperback : 9781839040641, 104 pages, April 2022


Tessa is a young, brilliant barrister. She has worked her way up from working-class origins to the top of her game: defending, cross-examining and winning.

But an unexpected event forces her to confront the patriarchal power of the law, where the burden of proof and morality diverge.

Prima Facie by Suzie Miller is an award-winning play for a solo actor, taking us deep into a world where emotion and integrity are in conflict with the rules of the game.


"A play that roars... urgent and powerful."

- Guardian

"A searing, intense indictment of the ways the legal system perpetuates the patriarchal order that has created it in the first place… The relevance of this unsettling drama for our present moment of #MeToo is obvious… joins the ranks of such works as Michaela Coel's I May Destroy You and Nina Raine's Consent… What we come to know is certainly disturbing, but, as in all great theatre, it strikes one as a true privilege to have made the journey."

- The Arts Desk

"An outstanding piece of theatre that has a phenomenal impact."

- Reviews Hub

"An unforgettable moment of theatre."
