Event Notes

× Boone Dog Productions presents Willy Russell’s SHIRLEY VALENTINE, starring SHERYL ANNE WHEATON as the Liverpool housewife-heroine in a comedic tour-de-force. When her best friend asks her to go to Greece with her for 2 weeks, Shirley jumps at the chance to escape her predicable, loveless life and in Greece she rediscovers the woman she used to be and the happiness that she has been missing. An affair with a local helps Shirley realize that there is more to life and that change is possible. Funny and wise, this promises to be a magical evening of theatre.

“It is a simple and brilliant idea...the profound and perennial point of the comedy is the problem we seem to have contemplating the idea of a woman alone - in a pub, on a beach, in a restaurant. This is what Shirley learns to combat as she unravels her own sexual and social identity. The play is not only funny, it is also moving." Michael Coveney, Financial Times.
