Shirley Valen­tine has a wild side but, for the sake of oth­ers, she has sub­dued it. You know the feel­ing. When ninety per­cent of what you do is be­cause people need you. Then, you re­alise that there’s a Shirley Valen­tine buried in­side wait­ing to burst out. Seen it be­fore. Of course you have. But that won’t stop you from jump­ing in be­fore it’s booked out.

My Bril­liant Di­vorce

It’s dev­as­tat­ing when he walks out. Though An­gela Kennedy Lipsky im­me­di­ately sees that there were things about Round­head she couldn’t stand!!! Her mother thinks she should apol­o­gise and win him back. “Di­vorce is not re­spectable”. An­gela finds out di­vorce can be de­press­ing, but hey, it can be lib­er­at­ing too. It can be en­light­en­ing. It can be ex­hil- arat­ing. It can be bril­liant!!! You’ll love it.

Same Time Next Year. Ge­orge and Doris love each other pas­sion­ately. But Ge­orge also loves He­len, his wife, and he loves his kids and Doris loves her hus­band, Harry, and she loves their kids. So Ge­orge and Doris meet one week­end ev­ery year lov­ing each other and learn­ing to love each other’s fam­i­lies, with­out ever meet­ing them, of course. You’ll love Ge­orge and Doris too but don’t try this at home.

Glo­ri­ous is about us. You and me. It’s os­ten­si­bly the story of the ir­re­sistible Florence Foster Jenk­ins, no doubt the worst singer in the world, yet we want to hear her over and over and over again. Such madness! We hide be­hind the seats ‘til each song ends then jump up scream­ing for more. Don’t miss this play. You’re part of it and this true story is fas­ci­nat­ing.
