Mirrors at Leicester Square Theatre

About

Mirrors, written and performed by RADA graduate Siobhan McMillan, gained critical acclaim at the Fundamental Monodrama Festival in Luxembourg (2015), the Festival of Feminism at Camden People's Theatre (2015) and at a sell-out run at the Rosemary Branch Theatre (2016).

Mirrors is a black comedy, a modern fairytale, set in the bedroom (and inside the anxious mind) of Shy Girl, hopelessly waiting for her all-important date to turn up and give her validation. He never does. In her anger, humiliation and inevitable intoxication, she conjures up her alter ego, Shivvers, a wickedly evil witch and distant relative of Snow White's stepmother. Upon the grim realisation (from her usually affirming Mirror), that her beauty no longer reigns supreme, Shivvers embarks on a mission to track down her rival and destroy all who dare to be more gorgeous than she...

Mirrors is a provocative exploration of beauty, narcissism and neurosis. Siobhan McMillan draws us deep into her world with this remarkably physical, poetic, funny and poignant performance. From it we gain a moving insight into female angst and the neuroses that beset the modern woman, in a world where social media demands perfection and so often creates disconnection.
