The first production images have landed showing Sheridan Smith as Shirley Valentine.
Willy Russell’s Shirley Valentine starts previews tonight, 17 February 2023, at the Duke of York’s Theatre in London, playing to 3 June 2023.
Shirley Valentine is the joyous, life-affirming story of the woman who got lost in marriage and motherhood, the woman who wound up talking to the kitchen wall whilst cooking her husband’s chips and egg. But Shirley still has a secret dream. And in her bag, an airline ticket. One day she may just leave a note, saying: ‘Gone! Gone to Greece.’
Shirley Valentine is written by Willy Russell, directed by Matthew Dunster, designed by Paul Wills, with lighting design by Lucy Carter, sound design by Ian Dickinsonfor Autograph and is produced by David Pugh.
