Tadpole Productions presents ‘Shirley Valentine’

Tadpole Productions presents ‘Shirley Valentine’

What: Much-loved one-woman show Shirley Valentine is coming to the PumpHouse Theatre. The Tadpole Productions season of the iconic play by Willy Russell will see all-round entertainer Jackie Clarke bring a fresh approach to the title role.

Shirley Valentine is a 40-something housewife from the north of England, suffering from boredom, loneliness and eroded self-esteem after decades of being trapped in a loveless marriage.

But after a trip to Greece with her girlfriend, her eyes are opened to the world outside the walls of her kitchen and things will never be the same again. She takes us on a poignant and hilarious ride to regain her love of life, with her indomitable spirit to the fore.

The 10 characters in the play are all seen through Shirley’s eyes, lovingly and wickedly brought to life courtesy of Russell’s witty but thoughtful script, as Shirley makes the gutsy journey from wilted to wacky.

Where: The PumpHouse Theatre, Killarney Park, Takapuna

When: 6-16 May 2021
