Tell Me More

The Prima Facie play is a one-woman legal drama; Tessa is the only character on stage. She loves the rush of winning a case, even though she knows many of her clients are guilty, and undermining her opposition's weaknesses. She must reckon with that when she identifies weaknesses in her own case, from a legal standpoint. While playing this character, Comer also briefly acts as Tessa’s colleagues and family members.

Prima Facie premiered in Sydney, Australia — playwright Suzie Miller's home country — in 2019, where the show won multiple major awards from the Australian Writers' Guild. For Prima Facie’s subsequent London premiere, Comer won the Olivier and Evening Standard Awards 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. Though the role of Tessa in Prima Facie existed before Comer was cast, Miller rewrote Tessa’s backstory to more closely match Comer’s working-class upbringing in Liverpool, England.

What to Watch For

  • Comer made her West End debut in Prima Facie in London, and now she makes her Broadway debut with the play 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. The one-woman show premiered in Australia in 2022, just after Prima Facie went up in London.
  • Prima Facie is one of three shows currently on Broadway about the legal system; Chicago and Parade are the 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.
