Presented by Black Swan State Theatre Company of WA

2023 Olivier Award winner for Best New Play.

After taking the West End and Broadway by storm, this electrifying one-woman show comes to Perth in this brand-new production.

Tessa is a brilliant defence barrister addicted to winning.

From working-class origins to the top of her game, Tessa will relentlessly prod, probe and cross-examine to bring the shadows of doubt in favour of her clients.

When a shocking turn of events shifts her to the other side of the witness stand, she has to confront the lines where the patriarchal power of the law, burden of proof, and morals diverge.
