Globus brings crowd pleaser Shirley Valentine back to the stage

By Lindsay Advocate

Sarah Quick stars as Shirley Valentine.

Globus Theatre is excited to be continuing their 18th summer season with one of Globus’ all-time most popular shows, the memorable Shirley Valentine by Willy Russell, staring Artistic Director Sarah Quick

Valentine, the 42 year-old, working-class Liverpudlian housewife Shirley is so bored with her life that she finds herself regularly talking to the wall. She dreams of drinking a glass of wine “in a country where the grape is grown” and, when she eventually embarks on her adventure and packs her bags for a fortnight in Greece…what she finds is a whole lot more, according to a media release.

For those of you who remember the movie, or are fans of the theatrical version of Shirley Valentine which has been performed around the world, you won’t want to miss this show, says the media release. 

“Shirley Valentine was first performed on the Globus Theatre stage in 2013, and we were so excited to see so many audience members travelling from across the province to see the show,” says James Barrett, director. “Earlier this year we did a survey as to what our audiences would like to see as we start to re-connect and lots of patrons voted this show as one of their most treasured moments at Globus Theatre. The consensus was that Sarah was the quintessential Shirley…it’s a beautiful piece of theatre,”
