To celebrate the author’s 70th birthday, Meera Syal stars in Willy Russell’s tale of one woman’s life-changing holiday.
Shirley Valentine was once an incorrigible, anti-establishment rebel but now is a middle-aged Liverpool housewife. Her husband is an insensitive plodder and her suburban existence creeps along at a stultifying pace.
Shirley’s life is turned upside-down when her best friend wins an all-expenses-paid holiday for two to Greece, and opts to take her along. Once there, Shirley falls for a local tavern owner who both helps her to achieve a life-long dream and precipitates a passionate encounter.
