The Killing Eve star will play Tessa in this one-person play, a young, brilliant barrister who loves to win and has worked her way up from working class origins to be at the top of her game, prosecuting, cross-examining and lighting up the shadows of doubt in any case. An unexpected event forces here to confront the lines where patriarchal power of the law, burden of proof and morals diverge.
Prima Facie is directed by Justin Martin and performances begin on Friday April 15 at the Harold Pinter Theatre for a strict limited 9-week season.
Comer has most recently starred in 20 th Century Studios' Free Guy and The Last Duel , directed by Ridley Scott. She first hit the international scene with her role in Killing Eve . Next year she's reunited with Scott for Apple Studios' Kitbag , where she'll play Napoleon Bonaparte's beloved Josephine opposite Joaquin Phoenix.
Miller's play Prima Facie , which premiered in 2019 at the Griffin Theatre in Australia, won the 2020 Australian Writers' Guild Award for Drama; the 2020 David Williamson Award for Outstanding Theatre Writing; and the 2020 Major Australian Writers' Guild Award across all categories of theatre, film, and television. Previous plays include Caress/Ache and Sunset Strip (Griffin Theatre); Dust (Black Swan); The Mathematics of Longing (La Boite); SOLD (Theatre 503); Cross Sections and Driving into Walls (Sydney Opera House).
