A bored English housewife escapes to Greece, has an adventure with a local fisherman and decides to stay.

Shirley Valentine by Willy Russell

directed by Colleen McClure, starring Jessica Osbourne

February 5 – March 6 | Friday & Saturday 8 pm | Sunday at 2 pm

“I used to be The Mother. I used to be The Wife. But now, I’m Shirley Valentine again.”

Nominee! 1989 Tony Award, Best Play

Nominee! 1989 Drama Desk Award, Outstanding New Play

Named among the “10 most influential postwar British plays” by Guardian UK

The heroine in this actor’s tour-de-force is an ordinary middle class English housewife (Jessica Osbourne). 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. Ultimately, Shirley does escape to Greece, has an “adventure” with a local fisherman and decides to stay. This hilariously engaging play was a hit in London and New York, performed by Pauline Collins, who later recreated her role on film garnering an Oscar nomination.

“Absolutely smashing.” – The New York Post

“A joyful, captivating piece of theatre.” – The New York Daily News
