Small Roads KENMARE18 theatre festival - Shirley Valentine starring Susan Hennessy
SHIRLEY is Back!
Having a love affair with yourself is not an easy thing to get around to. Even though the affair is strictly between you and you it seems to concern everyone. Shirley Valentine doesn’t find it easy to break out and be truly loving to herself. She trips over so many obligations and duties along the way. And the habit of putting other people first, even when they don’t need it, keeps getting in her way. Shirley hasn’t a selfish bone in her body. So much so that she has to learn again to think about herself, her own needs, what really matters to her. She has to rediscover the joy of being Shirley Valentine.
It’s something we must all do; nurture the Shirley Valentine in ourselves.
And when Shirley comes back this September (three performances only) for the Small Roads, KENMARE18 theatre festival - we men shouldn’t have to sneak into the back row of The Carnegie Arts Centre. There’s a Shirley Valentine in us too. Bring it out. Flaunt it.
SHIRLEY VALENTINE written by Willie Russell starring Susan Hennessy is on September 14th, 21st and 22nd 2018 at the Carnegie Arts Centre as part of Small Roads KENMARE18 theatre festival.
