Event description

Tessa is a gun. And at the top of her game.

A brilliant barrister who defends men charged with sexual assault, she is a gladiatorial master of emotions who can work a courtroom like no other.

But when the tables are turned, her words are called into question and her accusations are now in doubt. The legal system’s failure to provide a solid road to justice for women is exposed. And now it’s personal.

After gripping audiences all over Australia and recently, in the West End with Killing Eve’s Jodie Comer, South Australia gets its very own production. Fresh from his acclaimed version of Glengarry Glen Ross, David Mealor directs Caroline Craig (Underbelly and Eureka Day) in this heart-stopping one-woman tour de force.

“Miller’s play is one of passionate moral intelligence. Having practised both criminal and human rights law, Miller brings that considerable insight to bear in this gripping look at how women are routinely underserved by a legal system rooted in the concept of innocent until proven guilty.” Limelight

“This is an urgent and compelling work. Run, don’t walk.” Time Out

“A searing indictment of the law’s treatment of women.” Sydney Morning Herald

How great that a new Australian play that has been such a hit and resonated so deeply with audiences gets its South Australian reboot with a team of our finest makers and in Caroline Craig, an actress who has oft electrified Adelaide audiences. A nail-biting and potent tale that will leave an indelible mark on you. Mitchell
