Jodie Comer is to make her West End debut in new play Prima Facie.
The piece by Suzie Miller will play at the Harold Pinter Theatre from 15 April 2022 to 18 June 2022 with tickets on sale now here.
Free Guy and Killing Eve star Comer will appear in the one-woman-play as lawyer Tessa.
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; prosecuting; 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.
Directed by Justin Martin, the production has set and costume design by Miriam Buether and lighting design by Natasha Chivers. Rebecca Lucy Taylor – the Brit Award nominated star of Self Esteem – will compose music with sound designers Max and Ben Ringham, video by Treatment Studio and voice coach Zabarjad Salam.
Jodie 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.”
Producer James Bierman commented: “I am incredibly privileged to be able to bring Suzie’s timely and important play to the West End with such a hugely talented group of people.
“Jodie is one of the most brilliant actors working today and her, this play, and Justin’s team are a perfect mix. Having tickets at a Pay What You Can level for each performance is also our commitment to making sure accessibility is at the heart of this production.”
