When: Wednesday, 29th March 2017
Where: Burdekin Theatre – 161 Queen Street Ayr QLD
Shirley Valentine by the award winning Willy Russell and starring Mandi Lodge (Menopause The Musical , Just the Ticket and Always…Patsy Cline) is a wonderfully entertaining monologue by a 42-year-old Liverpool mother whose self-esteem has been battered by school, marriage and life in general. When her best friend wins a Greek vacation for two, Shirley grasps the chance to head for the sun, to re-find herself, follow her dreams and to get a new lease on life.
With much humour, warmth, sympathy, human insight and a great deal of empathy for his female protagonist, Willy Russell brilliantly shows Shirley breaking out of the mould in which she was cast by society.
“This play is a modern classic and its theme of achieving your full potential remains universal and very relevant today.”
– Director, Denny Lawrence
