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.
