About the show

Prima Facie is a one-woman masterpiece that questions what is black and white in the eyes of justice.

Tessa Ensler is a successful criminal defence barrister addicted to the law. Making her way from underprivileged beginnings to reach the top of her game, she is ruthless, respected and knows precisely how to use the law to defend men facing sexual assault charges.

It is all power and success until a life-shattering event shakes Tessa’s belief in the law, placing her in the chair she has built her career pulling to pieces in the name of a fair trial.

Forcing her to confront a legal system engineered to fail her and the many survivors of sexual assault she herself has cross-examined.
