Company: Lighthouse Theatre
by Willy Russell
The heroine of this classic comedy by Willy Russell is an ordinary British housewife.
As she prepares chips and egg for dinner, she ruminates on her life and tells the wall about her husband, her children, her past, … and an invitation from a girlfriend to join her on holiday in Greece to search for romance and adventure. An invitation that could change her life forever.
This hilariously engaging play was a hit in London and New York, performed by Pauline Collins, who later reprised her role on film winning an Oscar nomination.
Over the years, productions of Shirley Valentine have been described as:
“this play touches audiences directly in a way that no other playwright has done since the early John Osborne … brilliantly funny …” – The Times
“Absolutely smashing.” – The New York Post
“A joyful, captivating piece of theatre.” – The New York Daily News
“A thrilling, cheer raising piece of theatre.” – The Financial Times
This production is produced with the help of the Swansea Grand Theatre, the Arts Council and NightOut.
