The upcoming Broadway production of Suzie Miller's Prima Facie, which begins previews on Broadway April 11 at the Golden Theatre following an acclaimed West End production, has revealed new key art that recreates the show's key motif with the faces of fans in place of star Jodie Comer's silhouette.
Prima Facie's producing company, Empire Street Productions, collected photos and stories from London fans to utilize in the project; a copy of the recreated artwork will be given to every fan who submitted. The art will also be displayed in the Golden Theatre, where Prima Facie will officially open April 23.
Directed by Justin Martin, the play follows a young and brilliant barrister who is forced to explore how patriarchal power over the law, burden of proof, and morals diverge after an unexpected event. The play explores themes of abuse and survivorship.
The Broadway production will work with The Schools Consent Project, a U.K.-based charity that seeks to educate young people on issues surrounding consent and sexual assault.
The production is also launching the Prima Facie Pro Bono Project, offering low-priced ticket lottery and rush tickets at every performance, while also providing free ticket access to specific partner and community organizations.
The production also features an original score by Rebecca Lucy Taylor (aka Self Esteem), scenic and costume design by Miriam Buether, lighting design by Natasha Chivers, sound design by Ben and Max Ringham, and video by William Williams for Treatment Studio. The Broadway run will be general managed by 101 Productions Ltd.
Prima Facie is produced by James Bierman's Empire Street Productions.
