Background


Mirror Mirror was written in 1979 by Robert Calvert (lead singer of Hawkwind) who spent many years developing his poetry and plays with Léonie Scott-Matthews, Artistic Director and Founder of Pentameters Theatre.


The 2019 revival production at Pentameters Theatre celebrated Calvert's artistic achievements through personal stories shared by Scott-Matthews, live music by/inspired by Hawkwind, and the integration of Calvert's published and unpublished poetry within the play.


This revival coincided with 30 years since his death, the news of a Robert Calvert Anthology being published later this year by Chris Purdon, and the Hawkwind 50th Anniversary Tour concluding at the Royal Albert Hall.


Synopsis


Nostalgia for the Future


Upon discovering technical difficulties with her Reflexotronics mirror, a worn woman past her prime seeks appraisal from a robotic Mirror Technician.


Mirror Mirror is futuristic drama about aesthetics and how relying on physical beauty to determine your own self-worth inevitably leads to downfall.


After a successful run in Hampstead with full audiences for two-thirds of the shows, Pentameters Theatre's production of Mirror Mirror seeks to bring Robert Calvert's work to a central London venue.


This production will coincide with the publishing of his life works and aims to celebrate the friendship he shared with Hampstead local Léonie Scott-Matthews.
