Publisher's Summary

This is a live recording of British playwright Willy Russell performing his tragic/comic work Shirley Valentine. Straight from the authors mouth! Recorded at The Everyman Theatre in Liverpool in 1994, this recording has all the poignancy and wit of the hit film, combined with the intimacy of a solo show. This production also contains an interview with Willy conducted by the poet Roger McGough.

Witty yet poignant

I saw the movie years ago and loved it. I love it when authors read their books because you hear the voice the author intended.

A charming play

A reading of "Shirley Valentine" by the author Willy Russell. This funny and ultimately joyful play is a perfect choice for audio presentation, and we come to learn of the successful midlife crisis of a wife and mother from the London suburbs. Mr. Russell does a splendid reading of his own play, and the gender switch is not at all distracting. Pauline Collins did an equally good job in the onstage and movie versions (both of which were also superb) and I also recommend you try to find the movie on video. But don't miss this Audible production. Tremendous fun!

Great companion for learning the play

What made the experience of listening to Shirley Valentine the most enjoyable?

What a treat to hear this play read by the man who wrote it. Willy is a delightful reader and brings life to the characters with unique voices for each. It is no problem at all that Willy is not a woman yet reads in Shirleys voice. I listened to this many times over as I was also learning the script (there must have been updates as it varies in places). A treasure.
