A Mirror in London

Starring:

Jonny Lee Miller

A Mirror wowed audiences at the Almeida theatre in summer 2023, where it proved to be a very popular show indeed. Next it transfers to the West End's Trafalgar Theatre for February 2024, again starring the wonderful Jonny Lee Miller.

A Mirror tickets – An ingenious drama

Written by Sam Holcroft and Directed by Jeremy Herrin, A Mirror sold like hot cakes at the Almeida, described as ‘An ingenious drama’ by the Financial Times and given 4 stars by the Guardian, Observer, Time Out, Independent, The Mail on Sunday, Metro, and The Stage.

Jonny Lee Miller thrilled audiences in Trainspotting. Tanya Reynolds honed her reputation with Sex Education. And Micheal Ward from Top Boy also features in the world premiere of Sam Holcroft’s explosive new play. With themes of censorship, authorship and free speech, it’s an unusually powerful piece of theatre. No wonder tickets were so hard to come by for the Almeida season. Make sure you get your Trafalgar Theatre A Mirror tickets early!

See Jonny Lee Miller in A Mirror

Jonny Lee Miller’s portrayal of Simon ‘Sick Boy’ Williamson in Trainspotting sealed his reputation as a fine actor, borne out by subsequent roles as Dade Murphy in Hackers, then in Afterglow, Mansfield Park, The Flying Scotsman, Endgame, and T2 Trainspotting. He won an Olivier Award in 2012 for his role in Frankenstein and Satellite Awards in 2008 and 2012. This unsettling new play about censorship features a truly menacing performance from Miller.

All about A Mirror – Subversion on stage

At first glance A Mirror is all about a wedding. The venue is decorated for a celebration with balloons, fairy lights, and a disco ball. But this is actually a venue where there’s a subversive play being put on, and the play is unlicensed.

When the look-out spots law enforcement officers on the way, or a siren wails, the action stops and the scene reverts to a wedding. In a deeply layered production, the play follows an ex army mechanic called Adem who’s now a playwright. A witty satire ensues, looping around and around to ultimately end in a dramatic reveal. Plays within plays, actors within actors, this is complex stuff. At the end of the day it’s a piece about how best to tell the truth in a world where censorship is king and free speech a myth.

The full A Mirror cast and creative team

The full cast comprises Sara Houghton, Jonny Lee Miller, Aaron Neil, Tanya Reynolds, Geoffrey Streatfeild, Miriam Wakeling and Micheal Ward.

The creative team members are the writer Sam Holcroft, Director Jeremy Herrin, Set and Costume Designer Max Jones and Lighting Designer Azusa Ono. Nick Powell is the Composer and Sound Designer and Jonathan Holby the Fight Director, Jessica Ronane CDG the Casting Director and Clare Foster the Intimacy Director. Alice White is the Voice Coach and Cáit Canavan is the Costume Supervisor.

Really boring as we lost the train of the play pretty much immediately. L

The actors wee great. But myself and majority of audience hadnt got a clue what was going on. I Iove the west end but you’ve got to be in touch completely with the audience. Kind regards,

Very well acted, multi layered performance

Great performances from all the key players. Feels quite stagey / hammed up initially, but as the play unfolds you come to appreciate this device ensures you pick up on important points to reflect on later. Very well put together show.

Fully political and amazingly funny

In times of such a dire socioeconomic global situation, coming across a play that actually raises a voice on human liberties and the value of creativity is rare, to say the least. Well this one was exceptional cause it did not fail to remind us that humor and laughter are indeed the greater form of liberty! Exceptional

Restored my faith

Of the last two theatre productions we’ve attended we left one at the interval and would have done so with the other if there’d been an interval. Every aspect of this absorbing, thought provoking and amusing play was of the highest standard and has restored my faith in theatre.

Good acting pity about the play

Had all the elements of a Brechtian like drama but the desire for laughs rather than substance meant that the play never reached its full potential. Johnny Lee Miller was very good but he was not enough to justify the play’s transfer

Review: A MIRROR at Almeida

by Stuart King | Wednesday, August 23 2023, 22:22

The Almeida’s entrance is presently festooned with pink and white ribbons, the foyer adorned with an archway of balloons, whilst the auditorium itself proclaims a marriage ceremony about to get underway - complete with buffet table bearing Leyla and Joel and a wedding cake positioned to one side of the seating area reserved for family.
