The Mirror and the Light tickets

Wolf Hall’s thrilling final chapter

Thomas Cromwell’s journey from the streets of Putney to the halls of power reaches a dramatic conclusion as Hilary Mantel’s The Mirror and the Light premieres at the Gielgud Theatre.

Anne Boleyn is dead, and Thomas Cromwell sits beside Henry VIII as his most trusted advisor. But with the king’s legacy at risk and the threat of invasion imminent, Cromwell knows more than ever that ruthless ambition breeds dangerous enemies.

Based on Mantel’s book and adapted by the author alongside actor Ben Miles, The Mirror and the Light is the highly-anticipated conclusion of the Wolf Hall trilogy. The Royal Shakespeare Company and director Jeremy Herrin bring the Booker Prize longlisted novel to the West End, having previously staged Wolf Hall and Bring Up the Bodies to great acclaim.

Ben Miles returns as Thomas Cromwell, with Nathaniel Parker as Henry VIII.

Legions of fans made the book an instant best-seller in 2020, and The Mirror and the Light tickets offer one last, exhilarating journey through political intrigue in the Tudor court. Don’t miss Cromwell’s thrilling final chapter, open in London for a strictly limited season.

Captivating, brilliant ,superb, fantastic I find it difficult to put into words how absolutely fantastic the show is. I tend to be critical of most things and many shows I have viewed always seem to underwhelmed somewhere but honestly this show does not. From start to finish it was captivating. The acting was flawless. The storyline was easy to follow with all the changes and adaptations. An absolute gem. Well done to all the actors putting on such a polished performance. We loved it and I straightaway wanted to see it again and I don't do that often. I honestly found nothing to criticise but the seat I was sitting on. Captivating brilliant superb fantastic amazing etc are still not describing how good this show was. THANK YOU , WITH ALL OUR LOVE ❤️ How anybody finds criticism of the show is mind-boggling. If you miss it you miss a gem.

Wonderful production ,and enjoyed costumes in tudor dancing etc. Acting excellent although missed some of the comedy due to the faint sound in places, but still enjoyed overall performance.

Ben Miles is superb as he reprises his role as Thomas Cromwell in the final instalment of Hilary Mantel's best selling 'Wolf Hall' trilogy. Brilliant acting from all the cast, however this was probably the weakest in the trilogy for me
