Almeida Theatre's A Mirror will transfer to London's West End, playing January 22-April 20, 2024, at the Trafalgar Theatre. Opening night will be February 1. The limited run will continue through April 20.
Reprising their performances from the Almeida run will be Jonny Lee Miller, Tanya Reynolds, and Geoffrey Streatfeild as Čelik, Mei, and Bax, respectively. Joining the company for the West End run will be BAFTA nominee Samuel Adewunmi (You Don't Know Me) as Adem.
The work, written by Sam Holcroft, takes place at a non-licensed wedding in an authoritarian state, exploring ideas of censorship, free speech, and art as resistance. Almeida's run played its final performance in September, earning an Evening Standard Award nomination for Best New Play.
Jeremy Herrin is back to direct after staging the Almeida run. The production will feature set and costume design by Max Jones, lighting design by Azusa Ono, music and sound design by Nick Powell, and fight direction by Jonathan Holby. Casting is by Jessica Ronane.
Second Half Productions is producing the West End bow, with co-producers Almeida Theatre, Rodeo Productions/Tilted, Winkler & Smalberg, and Trish Wadley Productions.
A priority ticket sale begins November 28, with general on sale following November 30. Visit AMirrorWestEnd.com.
