Prima Facie
Griffin Theatre Company presents
Prima Facie

23 Jun 2021 to 10 Jul 2021

After a sold-out season at the Stables, Suzie Miller’s Griffin Award-winning tour de force makes its much-anticipated return to the stage in 2021.

Prima Facie is an indictment of the Australian legal system’s failure to provide reliable pathways to justice for women in rape, sexual assault or harassment cases. It’s a work of fiction, but one that could have been ripped from the headlines of any paper, any day of the week, so common you could cry.

Sheridan Harbridge stars as Tessa—a criminal lawyer at the top of her game who knows the law permits no room for emotion.

To win, you just need to believe in the rules. And Tessa loves to win, even when defending clients accused of sexual assault. Her court-ordained duty trumps her feminism. But when she finds herself on the other side of the bar, Tessa is forced into the shadows of doubt she’s so ruthlessly cast over other women.

Turning Sydney’s courts of law into a different kind of stage, this taut, rapid-fire and gripping one-woman show by Suzie Miller (Sunset Strip, Caress/Ache) exposes the shortcomings of a patriarchal justice system where it’s her word against his.

Maybe we need a new system.
