Dates and venue have been announced for the Broadway premiere of Suzie Miller's West End hit Prima Facie, performed by Emmy-winning Killing Eve star Jodie Comer.

The 100-minute solo drama will begin performances April 11, 2023, at the Golden Theatre, with opening night set for April 23. Justin Martin directs, as he did in London.

Comer plays Tessa, a young barrister who is forced to confront the power of the law and the burden of proof following a sexual assault. Miller, a former human rights and children's rights lawyer, earned the 2020 Australian Writers' Guild Award for Drama for the 2019 premiere production in Sydney.

Prima Facie has sets and costumes by Miriam Buether, lighting by Natasha Chivers, sound by Ben and Max Ringham, score by Rebecca Lucy Taylor, and video by William Williams for Treatment Studio.
