A comedy by Willy Russell
Directed by Jerry Miller / Starring Sheri Bagley
Wondering what has happened to her youth and feeling stagnant and in a rut, a middle-aged, working class Liverpool housewife finds herself regularly alone and talking to the wall while preparing an evening meal of egg and chips for her emotionally distant husband. When Shirley?s best friend offers to pay for a trip-for-two to Greece, she packs her bags, leaves a note on the cupboard door in the kitchen, and heads for a fortnight of rest and relaxation. Filled with warmth, charm and hilariously poignant observations about ordinary life, Shirley Valentine is an anthem to freedom of the soul with a generous dose of salt of the earth.
