About the Play:

Mirror, Mirror is a full-length dramatic comedy by Sarah Treem. In this dark comedy, based on Snow White, ten teenagers love, lose, betray and revenge each other over one autumnal weekend in a kingdom far, far away. It is a precarious landscape where magic lurks behind make-up, mirrors and memories.

Mirror, Mirror takes the classic story of Snow White and puts it into the 21st century. Every high school prom is the same: fancy dresses, prom kings and queens, and, of course, drama. In the bathroom Gretchen Black, the most popular girl in school, lights a cigarette and asks the mirror on the wall who's the fairest of them all. The mirror shows her a horrible witch instead of her own reflection. Gretchen puts the cigarette out in her armpit and the witch disappears. Moments later a mysterious new girl named Rose White arrives at Homecoming. She has no hips or chest to speak of, but her skin shines white as snow and her lips are as red as the rose. Rose is transgendered, but still manages to be the prettiest at the prom. Gretchen Black decides she can't handle someone else being prettier and more popular than her. She knows that things have to change so she doesn't lose her boyfriend, Badger Biers, and even more important, her popularity. Take a wild ride with Mirror, Mirror, a modern day Snow White from the writer of HBO's House of Cards and In Treatment and see just how these characters overcome the crazy prom weekend.

Mirror, Mirror premiered in 2005 at the Yale School of Drama (also known as YSD) in New Haven, Connecticut. Since then the play has been mounted by high schools, colleges, and community theatres.

Cast: 5 women, 6 men
