Shirley Valentine... a day at the theatre

It was a beautiful day to travel to London and watch the play "Shirley Valentine" at the Grand Theatre. I laughed with Shirley as she rediscovered herself...from a boring middle-aged housewife, who talks to a wall to the real Shirley. In a one lady play, she continually asks herself what has happened to her life. A girlfriend pays for them to travel to Greece and there she finds an escape. Shirley is daring to venture beyond the person she has become and to reconnect with the person she once was. She tells her story in a humorous way and it is easy to identify with her. The leading actress is Nora McLellan - thank you Nora!!
