Two Way Mirror by Arthur Miller
Two Way Mirror
by Arthur Miller
A double bill of short plays for the same two actors, looking at relationships, reality and how we interact and view one another, and doing so in a witty, fast-paced, dark but warm way. It is also regarded by many as Miller's only oblique artistic exploration of his failed marriage to Marilyn Monroe
In “Elegy for a Lady”, a shopkeeper attempts to help a man seeking a gift for a dying woman, only for them both to discover something about themselves
“Some Kind of Love Story” is classic Americana with a twist – a Sam Spade-style detective drama turns psychological when a private investigator tasked with proving a miscarriage of justice realises the only person who knows the truth is an old flame whose emotional fragility plays itself out in multiple personalities. Where does truth lie? And will anyone believe it if they hear it?
Cast includes our own Eleanor Stourton in the two female roles, and she will be joined by the eminent American actor Nigel Barber, whose career spans half a century and multiple continents, and includes appearances in blockbusters such as “Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation” and major musicals such as “The Bodyguard” and the national tour of “Funny Girl” where he starred as Florenz Ziegfeld opposite Sheridan Smith.
This tour is proud to support MIND - the mental health charity and a collection will be taken on the night.
