Shirley Valentine is the joyous, life-affirming story of the woman who got lost in marriage and motherhood, the woman who wound up talking to the kitchen wall whilst cooking her husband's chips and egg. But Shirley still has a secret dream. And in her bag, an airline ticket. One day she may just leave a note saying: 'Gone! Gone to Greece.'


Shirley Valentine is the celebrated one-woman play written by Willy Russell, winning him his third Olivier Award. Sheridan Smith is a multi-award-winning actress with two Olivier Awards and a BAFTA. Matthew Dunster is a three-time Olivier Award nominated director whose work most recently has been seen on Broadway with Martin McDonagh's Hangmen and in the West End with 2:22 by Danny Robins.


The appearance of any member of cast is subject to change and may be affected by contracts, holiday, illness, or events beyond the producers' control.

    I attended the performance on 15th March Attended with two women friends who are not from Liverpool. Student at Liverpool College of Art at the time when the Everyman was established and taught later in Kirby so I was familiar with the language. I savoured William Russells text and we all thought Willy R must have been confident in Sheridan Smith to present the role. She was fabulous in delivery. Would love a recorded detail, so much to take in and immensely funny.
