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. A provocative exploration of beauty, narcissism and neurosis.

Synopsis


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.
