Bringing a modern classic to Cheltenham audiences, The Everyman Theatre Company is presenting Willy Russell’s Shirley Valentine in February 2020 – just in time for Valentine’s or Galentine’s!
Starring television star Claire Sweeney in the title role, Shirley Valentine tells the tale of a lonely middle-aged woman, who feels stuck-in-a-rut, thanks to an uninspiring marriage.
But, an impromptu girls’ holiday to Greece sees Shirley swap her stagnating life in Liverpool for a break in the sun, where she starts to see things very differently.
From Willy Russell, the writer of Blood Brothers and Educating Rita, the one-character play is a fantastic opportunity to see a phenomenal piece of monologue theatre, produced locally by Everyman Theatre’s own production company, and directed by Ian Talbot OBE.
Ian said: ‘This is the first time that I have directed Shirley Valentine although I have admired the play for many years. It celebrates the independence of women in a marvelously humorous way.’
Described by organisers as ‘a heart-warming comedy that will transport audiences to sunnier climes’, this is a rare chance to catch the stage version of the much-loved Oscar nominated film, starring Pauline Collins and Tom Conti.
