Something’s about to change for Mrs Shirley Bradshaw, mother of grown children and confidence eroded housewife. After decades of dull married life, mince dinners every Thursday and talking to the kitchen wall, her former self – the fearless Shirley Valentine – is fizzing to get out. And she’s ready to change everything. Even the wall.
First performed in 1986, Willy Russell’s comic monologue SHIRLEY VALENTINE opened to awards and rave reviews and was made into an Oscar nominated film. Three decades later its message that ‘it’s never too late to be yourself’ manages to kick off any clichés with a story that is engagingly human and warmly sympathetic.
