A woman stands on the white sands of a deserted beack. Her back is to us, her arms stretched wide as she faces towards an azure blue sea. A tiny island is to the right. The woman is casually dressed in short-sleeved white top, ankle-length blue skirt with layers of ruffles. A broad-brimmed strae hat shades her head.

Shirley is a Liverpool housewife. Her kids have left home and she makes chips and eggs for her husband while talking to the wall. Where has her life disappeared to? Out of the blue, her best friend offers her a trip to Greece for 2 weeks and she secretly packs her bags. She heads for the sun and starts to see the world and herself very differently.

Willy Russell’s heart-warming comedy premiered in 1986 and took the world by storm. It was adapted into an Oscar nominated film. Now on its 30th anniversary, Jodie Prenger stars in a major revival of this national treasure.
