Shirley Valentine
A comedy by Willy Russell.

Directed by Doug Bennett

Season 1 2009: 
10 March to 28 March

N.B. No performance on Thursday 12th March 

Shirley Valentine takes the form of a monologue by a housewife before and after a transforming holiday in Greece. Shirley's a middle-aged Liverpool housewife, who finds herself talking to the wall while she prepares her husband's chips 'n' egg, wondering what happened to her life. She compares scenes in her current life with what she used to be like and feels she's stagnated and in a rut. When her best friend wins an all-expenses-paid vacation to Greece for two, she leaves the drudgery of cooking dinner for her husband, packs her bags and heads for the sun. The note on the kitchen table reads "Gone to Greece back in two weeks." Shirley begins to see the world, and herself, in a different light, finding romance and a new awareness of who she is and what her existence can be with just a little effort on her part.
