About this event

Willy Russell's 'Shirley Valentine' makes a highly anticipated return to the Gaiety Theatre following a sensational sell out run.

Treat yourself to an evening of laughter and triumph, as Norma Sheahan, one of Ireland’s leading dramatic actors, breathes new life into Willy Russell’s effervescent and iconic character SHIRLEY VALENTINE.

Trapped in a dreary marriage and humdrum life, Shirley wonders when she lost her hopeful, youthful self. So, when a divorced friend asks Shirley to go on a vacation to Greece, she bravely gathers what remains of her dignity and begins a humorous and uplifting voyage of rediscovery.

Shirley with ever-opening eyes, begins to see the world – and herself – in a different light… but will she ever go back to being “St Joan of the fitted units”?
