No one thought she had the courage. The nerve. Or the lingerie.
Shirley Valentine is a middle-aged Liverpool housewife, who finds herself talking to the wall while she prepares her husband`s chip `n egg, wondering what happened to her life. But when her best friend wins an all-expenses-paid vacation to Greece for two, Shirley begins to see the world, and herself, in a different light.
Shirley Valentine has been both a 1986 Willy Russell one hander play, and a subsequent charming romantic comedy film with Russell writing the screenplay, staring Pauline Collins in a career defining role, supported by Tom Conti and Julie McKenzie. Shirley Valentine followed the similar-themed film, Educating Rita.
KickstArt invites you to come on a liberating adventure with Shirley Valentine, everybody’s favourite housewife. Lisa Bobbert reprises her 2008 role as the bored housewife who flees the nest.
Directed by Steven Stead, designed by Greg King, with lighting design by Tina le Roux.Posted on
