Bringing digital cinema and theatre to the heart of the Peak District

National Theatre

Prima Facie


Jodie Comer (Killing Eve) makes her West End debut in the UK premiere of Suzie Miller’s award-winning play.

Tessa is 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. An unexpected event forces her to confront the lines where the patriarchal power of the law, burden of proof and morals diverge.

Prima Facie takes us to the heart of where emotion and experience collide with the rules of the game.

Justin Martin directs this solo tour de force, captured live during the play’s sold out run at the intimate Harold Pinter Theatre.


Doors open 30 minutes before the performance commences.

Please arrive in plenty of time to register and, if you wish, order interval drinks.
