About Shirley Valentine

The celebrated one-woman play written by Willy Russell, winning him his third Olivier Award, and starring Sheridan Smith, a multi-award-winning actress with two Olivier Awards and a BAFTA, comes to London's Duke of York's Theatre in February of 2023. Directed by Matthew Dunster, a three-time Olivier Award nominated director, whose work most recently has been seen on Broadway with Martin McDonagh's Hangmen and in the West End with 2:22 by Danny Robins. You've seen the film, now see the play it was based on. Shirley Valentine is the joyous, life-affirming story of the woman who got lost in marriage and motherhood, the woman who wound up talking to the kitchen wall whilst cooking her husband's chips and egg. But Shirley still has a secret dream. And in her bag, an airline ticket... One day she may just leave a note, saying: 'Gone! Gone to Greece.' Sheridan Smith said “As a mum now myself I’m delighted to be playing theatre’s best-loved mum and I am honoured to be entrusted by Willy Russell to bring his Shirley to life once again in the West End. Now, to practice cooking chips and egg!”
