Tessa (Comer) 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; defending; cross examining and winning, until an unexpected event forces her to confront the lines where the patriarchal power of the law, burden of proof and morals diverge.

The West End production of Prima Facie worked with The Schools Consent Project, a UK-based charity founded by Kate Parker that educates young people on issues surrounding consent and sexual assault. In addition to fundraising and donations, the production worked with the charity and various school groups to foster further understanding and education. Empire Street Productions announces that Prima Facie on Broadway will continue to work with The Schools Consent Project to extend the organization’s outreach to US schools.

Prima Facie will also work with Everyone’s Invited, a digital safe place for survivors to share their stories completely anonymously. Founded by Soma Sara, Everyone’s Invited provides many survivors a sense of relief, catharsis, empowerment, and gives them a feeling of community and hope.

Jodie Comer earned rave reviews for her West End debut in Prima Facie, which played April 15-June 18, 2022 at the Harold Pinter Theatre. She has received The Stage’s 2022 Best West End Debut Award and has been nominated for a 2022 Evening Standard Award for Best Actress.
