In a nutshell
A tour de force indictment of the legal system
For criminal lawyer Tessa, the law is a thrilling
game that she loves to win, taking no prisoners.
She has fought every step of the way for her
position, and she’s the best there is. Her feelings
have no place in her work - just the rules. That’s
why, even when she’s called upon to defend
men accused of sexually assaulting women, she
detaches her feminism and her compassion in the
cut and thrust of the courtroom.
But when Tessa finds herself on the other side of
the bar - as a victim - the system she thought she
had mastered starts working against her.
Suzie Miller’s urgent, gripping one-woman show
combines wry humour, raw emotion and an
unforgettable character. In a post-#MeToo world,
it’s a stinging rebuke to a flawed legal system,
and a clarion call to change the rules.
