Shirley Valentine by Willy Russell

Director Brett Turner-Valenta

 

SEASON DATES: 30 June – 17 July, 16 performances

 

SYNOPSIS

Shirley is a middle-aged Liverpool housewife, who finds herself talking to the wall while she prepares her husband’s chips ‘n’ egg, wondering what happened to her life. She compares scenes in her current life with what she used to be like and feels she’s stagnated and in a rut. She feels trapped and wonders what happened to her, a woman who laughed and had fun.  But when her best friend wins an all-expenses-paid holiday to Greece for two, Shirley begins to see the world, and herself; in a new light.

 

CHARACTER BREAKDOWN

Shirley, a housewife aged mid 40’s upwards.

Liverpool accent required.

Married to a man very set in his ways, their two kids are now young adults living away from home.  

She now talks to inanimate objects and loves a white wine.
