Willy Russell’s Shirley Valentine at the Everyman Theatre

Thursday 13 – Saturday 22 February 2020

By Willy Russell
Presented by The Everyman Theatre Company
Directed by Ian Talbot
Starring Claire Sweeney

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 starring 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, Regents Park.

Shirley Valentine - The Perfect Valentine's Treat. Why not book a Valentine's Package for two on Friday 14th or Thursday 15th February, including a meal for two in Matchams Restaurant, tickets to the show and a red rose?
