Mirrors by Siobhan McMillan
  • West End

Inept vlogger Shy Girl has been stood up. Again. Humiliated and a little intoxicated, she stares into her bedroom mirror and decides it is time to act. Shy Girl conjures up Shivvers - a wicked witch, distant relative of Snow White's stepmother and the most gorgeous person in the universe. When her mirror announces that her beauty has a rival, Shivvers embarks on a mission to track down and destroy whoever dares to be more gorgeous than she. Both a black comedy and a modern fairytale, Mirrors is a provocative and poetic exploration of narcissism and neurosis. Siobhan McMillan's remarkable performance takes the audience on a fabulous flight of fancy in search of validation and vodka. Mirrors arrives at the Leicester Square Theatre Lounge after acclaimed runs at the Rosemary Branch and King's Head Theatres in North London. 'Siobhan's stage presence is infectious& her audience is embraced by her energy, enchanted by her command and captivated by her vitality and mischief.' - Marc Limpach, Kassematten Theatre, Luxembourg 'Evokes everything from Salome to Lorca, Ken Russell to Zelda& the scene in which Shivvers feasts on the eyes and toes of men was one of the most electric moments I have experienced at the theatre.' - Facebook review
