Shirley Valentine brings lifes changes to the stage

HILLSBURGH - Shirley Valentine, the award-winning comedy by Willy Russell, plays at Century Church Theatre here Sept. 14 to 18.

The play is also an Oscar-winning movie, and it engages the audience more closely and more hilariously with Valentine’s reminiscences of her school, her marriage, her children, her humdrum daily routine, and her need to change her life.

Inside Mrs. Joe Bradshaw, 42-year-old wife and mother, is the former Shirley Valentine - longing to get out. She has realized that everyone has so much unused life, that her youthful dreams have not been fulfilled. She is neither supported nor appreciated by those around her, and in dedicating herself to her husband and children she has lost herself along the way.

Married to a husband who wants everything always to stay the same, Valentine wants to wake up not knowing what the day will hold; she longs for new experiences. She knows that she has to make a change.

How she does it is brilliantly revealed with humour, sympathy and warm insight. Underneath the wildly funny stories are realities everyone can relate to.

Starring Carol Beauchamp, and directed by Neville Worsnop, the show has matinees on Wednesday, Thursday, Saturday, and Sunday at 2:30pm, and evening performances on Friday and Saturday at 8pm.
