A sharp, visually-arresting theatrical experience, based on the sleeper-hit 70s film

Myrtle Gordon's been a star of the stage for years. She's loved by audiences, acclaimed by critics. Now she's been cast in the role of a lifetime, and opening night is rapidly approaching – but something's not quite right.

The lines won't stick, she can’t stay in character, reality and make-believe are starting to blur - and there's a strange woman in her dressing room.

Is she a ghost? A hallucination? Another Myrtle, who's climbed out from the mirror?

The classic 1977 film of what happens when a woman can't play her role anymore, in a startling new theatrical version by Carissa Licciardello. If you’ve seen the film you’ll know what a ride this story is.

If you haven’t, you’re in for a treat. It’s scary, it’s unsettling, it’s dramatic, and it’s weirdly profound. From the minds behind last year’s A Room of One’s Own, one for the lovers of theatre. – Eamon
