Globus Theatre Brings Audience Favourite “Shirley Valentine” Back To The Stage

KAWARTHA LAKES-The loveable Brit and audience favourite is back! 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

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!

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! As we come out of one of the world’s most difficult times, this comic tour-de-force will take the audience on an uplifting, poignant and ultimately heartwarming journey from the council houses of Liverpool to the sun-kissed beaches of Greece…with lots of wine along the way! This is a must see for anyone who has recently started talking to the wall! 

“Shirley Valentine was first performed on the Globus Theatre stage in 2013, and we were so excited to see so many audience members traveling from across the province to see the show! 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” James Barrett, Director.
