Shirley, our heroine, wonders what has happened to her and is now feeling stagnant and in a rut. She finds herself regularly talking to the wall while preparing her husband's chips and egg. When her best friend wins a trip-for-two to Greece, she packs her bags, leaves a note on the cupboard door in the kitchen, and heads for a fortnight of rest and relaxation. What she finds is a new awareness of who she is and what her life can be. Shirley Valentine won the Olivier Award for Best Comedy and The New York Daily News called it "a joyful, captivating piece of theatre." The Salem Theatre Company production is sponsored by The Salem Five Charitable Foundation.
