Hello Beautiful Souls, For this week’s blog post, I had the pleasure of attending my first play of 2024 that truly surprised me to my core – “A Mirror.” Stepping into the theatre, I was immediately struck by the incredible cast, featuring talents like Jonny Lee Miller from “Transporter,” Samuel Adewunmi, whom I’ve admired in various Netflix movies, and Tanya Reynolds from “Sex Education.” Little did I know, I was about to venture on a journey unlike any other.

From the moment the “curtains” rose, it became apparent that “A Mirror” was not your typical play. It was a brilliantly crafted lie, a theatrical deception that left the audience questioning reality itself. Clocking in at a solid two hours without intermission, there was no opportunity to sneak away to the loo – a deliberate choice, as I later discovered, to fully immerse us in the experience.

The plot unfolded in a totalitarian state where artistic expression was tightly controlled by the Ministry of Culture. Against this backdrop, a rebel group dared to defy authority by staging an illegal play disguised as a wedding. What ensued was a darkly humorous political thriller where nothing was as it seemed. “A Mirror” masterfully navigated themes of love, truth, and rebellion in a society that prized neither.

Without giving away too much, I’ll simply say that the ending of “A Mirror” is nothing short of mind-blowing. It left me pondering the nature of truth and the power of art long after the final curtain fell.

For those intrigued by this tale of deception and defiance, “A Mirror” will continue its run at the Trafalgar Theatre until April 20th, 2024. Trust me, it’s an experience you won’t want to miss.
