Prima Facie – exclusive screening at BFI Southbank
March 8, 2023 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
After sold-out runs in cinemas across the UK, Prima Facie returns for one night only at BFI Southbank and will be followed by a panel discussion with special guests including Jude Kelly, Helena Kennedy KC and more to be announced soon.
The screening of Australian playwright Suzie Miller’s award-winning play, Prima Facie – starring Jodie Comer (Killing Eve) in her astonishing West End debut – will take place on International Women’s Day, 8 March. It will be part of the Southbank Centre’s Women of the World Festival (WOW), which runs 10-12 March.
In the critically acclaimed play, that transferred to Broadway after a glittering run in the London’s West End, Comer plays Tessa – a young, brilliant barrister. She has worked her way up from working-class origins to be at the top of her game. An unexpected event places her at the point where the patriarchal power of the law, burden of proof and morality diverge.
A donation from each ticket sold will go to support The WOW Foundation’s work, which includes the WOW Festival, the world’s biggest, most comprehensive festival celebrating women, girls and non-binary people.
