It follows the news that Jodie is set to make her West End debut in Suzie Miller’s award-winning play Prima Facie.

The Liverpudlian actress will play Tessa in the gripping, one-person play which focuses on the main character’s journey after a sexual assault.

Prima Facie, directed by Justin Martin, will begin performances at the Harold Pinter Theatre on April 15 and play a strictly limited nine-week season.

Tessa is a young barrister who has worked her way up from working class origins to be at the top of her game in the legal world.

However the unexpected event forces her to confront the lines where the patriarchal power of the law, burden of proof and morals diverge.

Jodie said of her upcoming role: ‘It’s such an honour to have been given the opportunity to work with Justin Martin, Suzie Miller and the whole team on this wonderfully unique play.

‘I look forward to bringing Tessa to life and introducing her to the audiences at the Harold Pinter theatre next Spring.’

Producer James Bierman commented: ‘I am incredibly privileged to be able to bring Suzie’s timely and important play to the West End with such a hugely talented group of people.’
