Shirley Valentine

The Everyman Theatre Company, which brought Waiting For Godot, Quartet and A Passionate Woman to Cheltenham audiences, presents another modern classic. 

Shirley Valentine is a heart-warming comedy by Willy Russell, the writer of Blood Brothers, which has won multiple Olivier and Tony awards and has been adapted into an Oscar nominated film starrring Pauline Collins and Tom Conti.

Claire Sweeney (Brookside, Chicago and Guys and Dolls) plays the title role of Shirley who's feeling stagnant and stuck in a rut in her empty nest, preparing egg and chips for her emotionally distant husband. When the opportunity arises to leave Merseyside behind for a holiday in Greece, Shirley leaves a note and heads for the sun where she starts to see the world and herself very differently.

The Everyman Theatre Company is delighted to welcome Ian Talbot OBE to direct this brand-new staging. Ian's extensive career includes being Artistic Director at the Open Air Theatre, Regent's Park.
