Every word counts

Shirley Valentine


Mina Anwar (The Thin Blue Line, Doctor Who) takes the title role in Willy Russell’s heartwarming comedy.

Housewife Shirley feels stuck in a rut and frustrated now that the kids have flown the nest. Whilst making egg and chips for her husband, she can’t help but wonder what has happened to her life… 

When the opportunity arises to leave her hometown behind for a holiday in Greece, she is off! Leaving a note on the kitchen table, Shirley heads to the sun to rediscover herself.

From the writer of Blood Brothers and Educating Rita, this Olivier & Tony award winning romantic comedy was made into an Oscar nominated film starring Pauline Collins and Tom Conti. This brand new production will be brought to life in the intimate setting of Bolton’s Library Theatre.
