Shirley Valentine

by Willy Russell

Wed 4th – Sat. 7th April 2007 at 7.30pm - Main House

Underneath Mrs Joe Bradshaw – 42 year old mother of 2 grown-up children – there is the former Shirley Valentine  longing to get out.  Her feminist friend offers her a free holiday in Greece and she seizes the opportunity.  Shirley, breaking out of the mould cast for her by society,  is brilliantly  shown with humour, warm sympathy and human insight. 

‘In this play (Mr Russell) touches English audiences directly in a way that no other playwright has done since the early John Osborne …brilliantly funny…" The Times
