SHIRLEY VALENTINE

Shirley Valentine is a heart-warming comedy by Willy Russell, the writer of Blood Brothers, which has won multiple Olivier and Tony awards and has been adapted into an Oscar nominated film starring Pauline Collins and Tom Conti.

Claire Sweeney (Brookside, Chicago and Guys and Dolls) plays the title role of Shirley who’s feeling stagnant and stuck in a rut in her empty, nest, preparing egg and chips for her emotionally distant husband. When the opportunity arises to leave Merseyside behind for a holiday in Greece, Shirley leaves a note and heads for the sun where she starts to see the world and herself very differently.

The Everyman Theatre Company is delighted to welcome Ian Talbot OBE to direct Shirley Valentine. Ian’s extensive career includes being Artistic Director at Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre.

"Winningly captivating"
- The Independent

“Shirley Valentine is perfect make-believe.”  
- The Observer

“The play is at times funny, at others desolatingly sad, and at the end it emerges as a moving celebration of the independence of the human spirit.”
The Telegraph
