Shirley Valentine by Lighthouse Theatre Ltd
The heroine in this actor’s tour-de-force is an ordinary middle class British housewife.
As she prepares chips and egg for dinner, she ruminates on her life and tells the wall about her husband, her children, her past, and an invitation from a girlfriend to join her on holiday in Greece to search for romance and adventure. An invitation that could change her life forever.
This hilariously engaging play was a hit in London and New York, performed by Pauline Collins, who later recreated her role on film garnering an Oscar nomination.
This production will feature Sonia Beck as Shirley and will be designed by Anna Kelsey under the direction of Dee Evans.
“this play touches audiences directly in a way that no other playwright has done since the early John Osborne … brilliantly funny …” – The Times
“Absolutely smashing.” – The New York Post
“A joyful, captivating piece of theatre.” – The New York Daily News
“A thrilling, cheer raising piece of theatre.” – The Financial Times
