“Killing Eve star Jodie Comer is the draw, but Suzie Miller’s one woman play sounds very promising too. It focusses on Tessa, a successful barrister who has fought her way to the top of her profession and has used all her skill to win cases, including defending men accused of sexual assault. But then Tessa herself is assaulted and she discovers how slippery justice can be. The run sold out when it was originally announced, but there is a daily lottery and as often turns out to be the case with apparently sold out shows it could well be that more tickets are released. Good to see the West End giving this subject airing, particularly at a time in the UK when police forces are reporting the highest number of sexual offences and rapes on record but the rape prosecution figure has fallen to just 1.3% of reported cases.”
