A Mirror opens at the Trafalgar Theatre

Second Half Productions take the show to the West End with the transfer of the play.

This week the Almeida Theatre production of Sam Holcroft’s critically acclaimed new play A Mirror, opens its doors.

Following a sold-out run at the Almeida last year, A Mirror, which was nominated for Best New Play at the 2023 Evening Standard Awards,  opens for a 13 week run at the Trafalgar Theatre.

Olivier Award-winner Jonny Lee Miller (Trainspotting; Elementary) and Tanya Reynolds (Sex Education; Scenes with Girls) reprise their roles as Čelik and Mei in the West End transfer, with BIFA Award-winner and BAFTA award-nominee Samuel Adewunmi (You Don’t Know Me; Trouble in Butetown) joining the production to make his West End debut as Adem. Geoffrey Streatfeild (Watch on the Rhine; Anatomy of a Scandal) also returns as Bax.

Set within a totalitarian state where a 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 a powerful, timely and highly entertaining exploration of censorship, freedom of expression and the search for truth and love in a society that values neither.

A Mirror will run at the Trafalgar Theatre until 20 April 2024, with opening night on 1 February 2024. Tickets start at £20 with 10,000 seats available at £50 and under throughout the run. For further information visit:

A Mirror is produced by Second Half Productions with co-producers the Almeida Theatre. The production is directed by Jeremy Herrin.
