Lovely Shirley

Kentish Gazette Canterbury & District - What's On - - STAGE -

Willy Rus­sell’s heart-warm­ing com­edy Shirley Valen­tine is as loved today as it was in 1986 when it pre­miered.

In cel­e­bra­tion of its 30th an­niver­sary, the first ma­jor re­vival of the show, which also be­came a film star­ring Pauline Collins, is stop­ping off in Kent.

Glen Wal­ford, di­rec­tor of the orig­i­nal pro­duc­tion, di­rects this ma­jor re­vival. The show stars Nicky Swift as Shirley, who has taken over the role from Jodie Prenger. Her stage cred­its in­clude Foot­loose and Les Mis­er­ables. Shirley Valen­tine runs at the Or­chard The­atre in Dart­ford un­til Satur­day, Novem­ber 11.
