Shirley Valentine

by Willy Russell

Presented in cooperation with Samuel French, Inc.

Inside Mrs. Joe Bradshaw -- 42 year-old mother of two grown children -- is the former Shirley Valentine, longing to get out. Her hope and self-confidence badly shattered by school, marriage, and life, she is reduced to talking to the kitchen wall.

As she sips a glass of wine, she dreams of "drinking wine in a country where the grape is grown." When her feminist friend offers her a holiday in Greece, Shirley seizes the opportunity, and finds a whole new meaning to the term "change of life."
