Suzie Miller

Published by Nick Hern Books

0 Male 1 Female

Tessa is a young, brilliant barrister

She has worked her way up from working-class origins to the top of her game

But an unexpected event forces her to confront the patriarchal power of the law, where the burden of proof and morality diverge

Prima Facie by Suzie Miller is an award-winning play for a solo actor, taking us deep into a world where emotion and integrity are in conflict with the rules of the game

After several acclaimed productions in Australia and winning the Australian Writers' Guild Award for Drama, the play received its European premiere at the Harold Pinter Theatre in London's West End in April 2022
