About the Show



You are invited to celebrate the wedding of Leyla and Joel

In a totalitarian state where the Ministry of Culture must approve all new works of art, a rebel group is staging an illegal play under the guise of a wedding. In this darkly funny political thriller, everything is not as it seems… A Mirror is an explosively entertaining story of the search for love and truth in a society that values neither.


Directed by Jeremy Herrin, A Mirror is hailed ‘Extraordinary and Mesmeric’ by the Guardian and comes to London’s West End following an acclaimed sell-out run at the Almeida Theatre.

Joining Jonny Lee Miller (Trainspotting, Elementary) and Tanya Reynolds (Sex Education, Scenes with Girls) are Geoffrey Streatfeild who returns to the role of Bax, and BIFA Winner and BAFTA nominee Samuel Adewunmi who plays the role of Adem.

Now in its final weeks, performances at the Trafalgar Theatre must end 20 April.
