Prima Facie

By Suzie Miller | Directed by Lee Lewis

Suzie Miller’s urgent, gripping one-woman show combines dry humour, raw emotion and an unforgettable character. In a post-#MeToo world, it’s a stinging rebuke to a flawed legal system, and a clarion call to change the rules.

A tour de force indictment of the legal system. For criminal lawyer Tessa, the law is a thrilling game that she loves to win, taking no prisoners. She has fought every step of the way for her position, and she’s the best there is. Her feelings have no place in her work—just the rules. That’s why, even when she’s called upon to defend men accused of sexually assaulting women, she detaches her feminism and her compassion in the cut and thrust of the courtroom. But when Tessa finds herself on the other side of the bar - as a victim - the system she thought she had mastered starts working against her.

Playwright Suzie Miller’s Prima Facie won the 2018 Griffin Award, for an outstanding play or performance text that demonstrates an authentic, inventive and contemporary Australian voice.
Before she became a playwright, Suzie Miller worked as a human rights lawyer specialising in children’s rights, Indigenous rights and in public interest law.
