A Mirror, the critically acclaimed drama from Sam Holcroft, will transfer to the West End next year following its world premiere this past summer. The show will play at the Trafalgar Theatre for 12 weeks beginning on 22 January, with opening night on 1 February.

Jonny Lee Miller (Trainspotting, Elementary) will reprise his leading role as Čelik from the Almeida Theatre premiere, and Tanya Reynolds (Sex Education) will reprise hers as Mei. Additionally, Geoffrey Streatfeild will return as Bax, and Samuel Adewunmi will make his West End debut as Adem.

A Mirror is set at the wedding of Leyla and Joel, which gradually reveals itself to be more than it seems. London Theatre's four-star review of the Almeida production reads, "Holcroft’s witty satire is an exuberant experience if you surrender to its looping structure, which does pay off smartly in a big climactic reveal."

Jeremy Herrin returns to direct. A Mirror also features sets and costumes are by Max Jones, lighting by Azusa Ono, composition and sound by Nick Powell, and fight direction by Jonathan Holby.
