Shirley ValentineTuesday 5th - Saturday 9th September 2017
“I’d like to drink a glass of wine in a country where the grape grown. Sittin’ by the sea. Lookin’ at the sun. But “he” won’t go ago abroad.
He gets jet lag when we go to the Isle of Man. I wouldn’t mind – but we go by boat.”
Shirley is a Liverpool housewife. Her kids have left home and she makes chips and egg for her husband while talking to the wall. Where has her life disappeared to? Out of the blue, her best friend offers her a trip to Greece for 2 weeks and she secretly packs her bags. She heads for the sun and starts to see the world and herself very differently.
Willy Russell’s heart-warming comedy premiered in 1986 and took the world by storm. It was adapted into an Oscar nominated film. Now, on its 30th anniversary, Jodie Prenger stars in a major revival of this national treasure.
