Something has to change

Back after its sell-out season in 2023!

This vital, witty,  gripping, multi-award-winning solo-show is touring New Zealand and is back at Circa Theatre for a limited time.

 Tessa is a criminal defence lawyer at the top of her game and loving it: defending, cross-examining, and playing the rules of the law to win. But when the tables turn she finds herself at the mercy of the very system that she has dedicated her life to. Shadows of doubt are illuminated, making us question, who is our legal system serving?

This phenomenal production starring Mel Dodge and directed by Lyndee-Jane Rutherford continues an urgent conversation for Aotearoa New Zealand.
