SHIRLEY VALENTINE (article first published : 2008-05-19)

The multi-award-winning KickstArt theatre company offers a liberating adventure with Shirley Valentine, everybody’s favourite housewife. A delicious, defining life-affirming one-woman show that deals with menopause, love and following one’s dreams. No-one thought she had the courage ... the nerve ... or the lingerie.

Shirley Valentine is a middle-aged Liverpool housewife, who finds herself talking to the wall while she prepares her husband's chips 'n egg, wondering what happened to her life. But when her best friend wins an all-expenses-paid vacation to Greece for two, Shirley begins to see the world - and herself - in a different light.

Shirley Valentine is a play and subsequent movie by Willy Russell which British actress Pauline Collins made her own. Starring the inimitable Lisa Bobbert as Shirley Valentine, the show is directed by Steven Stead and designed by Greg King with lighting design by Tina le Roux. It runs at the Elizabeth Sneddon Theatre from May 22 to June 8.

Performances from Tuesday to Saturday at 19h30 with a matinee on Saturdays at 14h30. Sundays performances at 18h00. Tickets R90 (R70 on May 22 only) and seating is reserved. Booking is at Computicket or phone 083 915 8000 or 011 340 or 8000 or visit www.computicket.com
