Editorial Reviews

Review

Willy Russell's plays... speak to even the critical heart.' Libby Purves, The Times, 28.07.10 'When Shirley blossoms on her sneakily planned Greek holiday, her feminimity unfurls disarmingly, and there are moments of pathos throughout.' Henry Hitchings, Evening Standard, 28.07.10 'You peer into these windows onto other lives, and see your own world partially reflected back at you. Highly recommended.' Dominic Cavendish, Daily Telegraph, 29.07.10 --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

This is the SCREENPLAY - not the stage version. Beware! I thought I was ordering the stage play. It's still a nice book though, with lots of notes and background info.

Format: Paperback
Shirley Valentine is a lovely character. She is a woman who started her life with fire and promise, and who found herself in her kitchen talking to the walls. Not because she is mad, but because her life is loveless, predicatable and dry. Until her friend takes her to Greece and her life changes, in many ways.
This is an absolutely delightful story. We can all identify with Shirley and her need to have a life with a little more meaning, and we can all cheer her as she goes about getting it. This is a poignant, sad and funny story, and it is a modern classic.

Format: Paperback
Shirley Valentine has become a hero to tens of thousands of women who've studied her character and applauded her life choices . . . in drama classes on (at least) two continents. Shirley is commonly uncommon, absolutely candid, and full of a range of emotions from cold fury to childlike giddiness. Anyone who doesn't know and love Shirley; anyone who hasn't made her their friend . . . please read about her!
