„Das Gesetz ist dazu da, alle Menschen zu beschützen. Oder?“ Prima Facie – Mit Suzie Miller und Anke Engelke

In the organizer's words:

Tessa Ensler, one of London's most outstanding young criminal defense lawyers, does not come from one of those prestigious families with "old money", but has worked her way up from a climate of domestic violence. Today, she defends men accused of sexual assault, among others. Her way of cross-examining witnesses - the alleged victims - is legendary and becomes her ticket to the inner circle of the bar. But then something happens that deeply shakes her faith in the law, and she decides to take the stand herself.
Australian author Suzie Miller has already written a theatrical monologue for her protagonist, which has been performed from Broadway to Düsseldorf. Her novel of the same name, Prima Facie, is a masterpiece about a reckoning with a justice system created by men. German text: Anke Engelke, Mod.: Marie-Christine Knop
