Shirley Valentine opens at ArtsWest Playhouse January 23rd!

Shirley Valentine opens at ArtsWest Playhouse on Wednesday, January 23, 2013!

Shirley Valentine tells the story of a woman in her ‘40s who is stuck in a rut, unsure of how to get her groove back. When Shirley’s best friend gets tickets for two to Greece, she packs her bags, leaves a note on the kitchen table, and sets off on an adventure. Like Eat, Pray, Love, the trip takes us on a journey of self-discovery, soul-searching, love and renewal. Footlight Award Winner (As Bees in Honey Drown) Heather Hawkins returns to ArtsWest to star in this funny, poignant, one-woman show. Noted among the most influential postwar British plays by the Victoria and Albert Museum, the play also earned a Laurence Olivier Award for Best New Comedy in 1988 and Tony Award nomination for Best Play.

Show runs January 23, 2013 through February 16, 2013. Tickets available online or through the ArtsWest Box Office: 206-938-0339.
