Meera Syal starred as the Liverpudlian housewife stuck in a rut. When her best friend wins an all-expenses-paid trip for two to Greece she packs her bags, heads for the sun and starts to see the world and herself rather differently.

Shirley Valentine played in repertory with Educating Rita at the Trafalgar Studios 1 from 8 July to 30 October 2010.

  • A triumph … affecting, funny and fresh

    The Times
  • Meera Syal is irresistible as Shirley Valentine - warm, communicative and bittersweet. She has the audience eating out of her hand.
