The Mirror and The Light – 2021 West End Dates

The Mirror and the Light Update for The Mirror and The Light at the Gielgud Theatre

The final novel in Dame Hilary Mantel's award-winning Wolf Hall trilogy, The Mirror and The Light, is due in the West End later this year. It's being billed as a final 'fast-paced final instalment' and it has been beautifully adapted for the stage by Mantel herself, and by Ben Miles who returns to play his dazzling role as Thomas Cromwell himself. The drama unfurls at the Gielgud Theatre from 23rd September to 28th November 2021.

Who’s involved in The Mirror and The Light?

This is the world premiere of Mantel's 'brilliant visceral play', following award winning success with the first two parts of the trilogy about Cromwell and Henry 8th, Wolf Hall and Bring Up the Bodies. She is the first woman to win the Man Booker Award twice. Bring Up the Bodies also won the Costa Novel Award, making it the first time a novel has won both awards. Prepare for an historical drama packed with sheer, classy brilliance and you won't be disappointed!
