Theatre Royal Brighton

Shirley Valentine Overview

Shirley is a Liverpool housewife. Her kids have left home and she makes chips and egg for her husband while talking to the wall. Where has her life disappeared to? Out of the blue, her best friend offers her a trip to Greece for 2 weeks and she secretly packs her bags. She heads for the sun and starts to see the world and herself very differently.

Willy Russell’s heart-warming comedy premiered in 1986 and took the world by storm. It was adapted into an Oscar nominated film. Now, on its 30th anniversary, Jodie Prenger stars in the first major revival of this national treasure.

'The funniest and most heart-warming play.'
Daily Mirror

‘Jodie Prenger has warmth, comic flair and a beguiling twinkle in her eye.’
The Times

‘Jodie brings Shirley to life with wonderful skill and delightful comedy timings, thoroughly deserving the inevitable standing ovation.’
Birmingham Mail
