Prima Facie
Griffin Theatre Company presents
Prima Facie

24 Nov 2021 to 11 Dec 2021

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

Prima Facie is an indictment of the Australian legal systems failure to provide reliable pathways to justice for women in rape, sexual assault or harassment cases. Its 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 Tessaa 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 shes so ruthlessly cast over other women.

Turning Sydneys courts of law into a different kind of stage, this taut, rapid-fire and gripping one-woman show by Suzie Miller (Sunset Strip) exposes the shortcomings of a patriarchal justice system where its her word against his. Maybe we need a new system.
