An audiobook adaptation of Suzie Miller’s acclaimed play Prima Facie has been released, voiced by Jodie Comer. You can listen now here.

The piece by Suzie Miller played in London at the Harold Pinter Theatre in 2022, before transferring to Broadway last year.

The one-woman-play features the Free Guy and Killing Eve star as lawyer Tessa.

Tessa Ensler is an exceptional barrister whose career in criminal defence is the result of unwavering determination. From her time at Cambridge, she has skillfully hidden her working-class background in a profession dominated by men, where connections are as crucial as expertise. Motivated by a commitment to justice and a passion for winning, Tessa thrives on the exhilaration of securing acquittals for her clients.

Tessa’s success seems unassailable as she is considered for a new position and shortlisted for the most esteemed award in her sector. However, an ill-fated encounter with a charming colleague reveals that the principles she has always adhered to may not safeguard her, prompting a profound reassessment of her convictions.

A recorded performance of the show in the West End was previously released for a limited time. Meanwhile a film adaptation is also in the works.
