SHIRLEY VALENTINE starring Mandi Lodge (Menopause The Musical + Always...Patsy Cline) is a wonderfully entertaining monologue by a 42-year-old Liverpool mother whose self-esteem has been battered by school, marriage and life in general. When her best friend wins a Greek vacation for two, Shirley grasps the chance to head for the sun, to re-find herself, follow her dreams and to get a new lease on life.
With much humour, warmth, sympathy, human insight and a great deal of empathy for his female protagonist, Willy Russell brilliantly shows Shirley breaking out of the mould in which she was cast by society.
“This play is a modern classic and its theme of achieving your full potential remains universal and very relevant today.” Director,Denny Lawrence 31 March FRI 8pm SHIRLEY VALENTINE [LIVE comedy]
"It is a simple and brilliant idea… the profound and perennial point of the comedy is the problem we seem to have contemplating the idea of a woman alone – in a pub, on a beach, in a restaurant. This is what Shirley learns to combat as she unravels her own sexual and social identity. The play is not only funny, it is also moving." Financial Times
