Shirley Valentine at The Source
Treat yourself to an evening of laughter, fun and triumph at The Source, as Norma Sheahan, one of Ireland’s leading dramatic actors, breathes new life into Willy Russell’s effervescent and iconic character Shirley Valentine on Saturday 14th May at 8pm. Meet Shirley, a 45-year-old housewife. Trapped in a dreary marriage and humdrum life, with no support from her demanding husband, her snooty neighbour, or self-absorbed “flown the nest children” Shirley seeks adventures away from her role as “St. Joan of the fitted units”. So, when a divorced friend asks her to go on a two-week vacation to Greece, Shirley, bravely gathers what remains of her dignity, digs deep into her flagging confidence, and begins a humorous and uplifting voyage of rediscovery. Shirley with ever-opening eyes, begins to see the world – and herself – in a different light… but will she ever return to her dismal kitchen?
