May 5 to 21, 2022 Directed by Jay Brazeau Starring Louise Porter
“Funny as hell and most heart-warming”
A bored housewife is offered a trip to Greece by her best friend. She secretly packs her bags, heads for the sun and starts to see the world and herself very differently. Willy Russell’s heart-warming one-woman comedy play premiered in 1986 and took the world by storm. Now, on its 36th anniversary, Louise Porter (Always Patsy Cline, On a First Name Basis) directed by Jay Brazeau recreates her role from 2018 in this English national treasure. Shirley is a Liverpudlian housewife. Her kids have left home, and she makes chips and egg for her husband while talking to the wall. Where has her life disappeared to? Out of the blue, her best friend offers her a trip to Greece for two weeks and she secretly packs her bags. She heads for the sun and starts to see the world and herself very differently.
Runs May 5 to 21, Wednesdays through Saturdays at 7:30pm; except Saturday, May 7 at 2:00pm only.
