NT Live: “Prima Facie” - (Running time 3 hours) - Jodie Comer (Killing Eve) makes her West End debut in the UK premiere of Suzie Miller’s award-winning play. Tessa is a young, brilliant barrister.

An unexpected event forces her to confront the lines where the patriarchal power of the law, burden of proof and morals diverge. Prima Facie takes us to the heart of where emotion and experience collide with the rules of the game. Justin Martin directs this solo tour de force, captured live from the intimate Harold Pinter Theatre in London’s West End. (The show includes sensitive subject matter. There is more information about this on the event page at LincolnTheater.net) Playing Thursday, July 21 at 7 p.m. Tickets: $15 adults, $13 members, and $5 youth.

“Official Competition” - (R; 1 hour, 55 minutes, in Spanish with English subtitles) - When a billionaire entrepreneur impulsively decides to create an iconic movie, he demands the best.

Completing the all-star team are two actors with massive talent but even bigger egos: Hollywood heartthrob Félix Rivero (Antonio Banderas) and radical theatre actor Iván Torres (Oscar Martínez). Both are legends, but not exactly best friends. Through a series of increasingly eccentric trials set by Lola, Félix and Iván must confront not only each other, but also their own legacies. Who will be left when the cameras finally start rolling? Plays at 2 and 7 p.m. Friday, July 22; Saturday, July 23 and Thursday, July 28; note earlier start times for: Sunday, July 24 at 5 p.m. and Wednesday, July 27 at noon.
