SHIRLEY VALENTINE

Synopsis:

 

Taking the form of a monologue by a middle-aged,

working class Liverpool housewife, it focuses on

her life before and after a transforming holiday

abroad. Wondering what happened to herself,

now feeling stagnant and

in a rut, Shirley finds herself regularly talking to

the wall while preparing her husband's chips 'an'

egg, until her best friend wins a trip-for-two to

Greece. Without a second thought, she packs

her bags, leaves a note on the kitchen table,

and heads for a fortnight of rest and relaxation. 

 

What she finds is romance and a new

awareness of who she is and what her

existence can be with just a little effort

on her part.
