Jodie Comer to make West End debut in ‘Prima Facie’
The BAFTA-winning actress will play a barrister in the one-woman play.
Jodie Comer will make her West End debut in the UK premiere of Suzie Miller’s Prima Facie at the Harold Pinter Theatre next year. Prima Facie is at the Harold Pinter Theatre from 15 April - 18 June and Prima Facie tickets are on sale now.
Prima Facie follows Tessa, a barrister who has worked her way to the top of her career. But when she’s forced to deal with an unexpected event, she must work in line with the patriarchal power of the law, a decision she doesn’t take lightly.
Jodie Comer will play Tessa in Prima Facie. The Emmy and BAFTA Award-winning actress is best known for playing Villanelle in Killing Eve, and has recently starred in Help alongside Stephen Graham. Speaking about her West End debut, Comer said: “It’s such an honour to have been given the opportunity to work with Justin Martin, Suzie Miller and the whole team on this wonderfully unique play. I look forward to bringing Tessa to life and introducing her to the audiences at the Harold Pinter theatre next Spring.”
Suzie Miller’s play Prima Facie premiered in Australia in 2019, winning the Australian Writers’ Guild Award for Darma. Prima Facie is directed by Justin Martin, with scenic and costume design by Miriam Buether and lighting design by Natasha Chivers.
Prima Facie tickets are on sale now.
