Media Release: Shirley Valentine emerges at Karralyka

By May 7, 2008No Comments

Travel on a life changing journey full funny yet moving moments with Willy Russell’s award winning play Shirley Valentine, performing at Maroondah’s Karralyka Centre on Saturday 7 June.

Councillor Alex Makin said this touching story sets the scene for a fantastic evening of entertainment and is a great way to spend an evening out with friends or family.

“Starring the highly acclaimed Glenda Linscott, from television’s Prisoner and Murder Call fame, as the shy and bored Mrs Joe Bradshaw, Shirley Valentine is an amusing, wise and moving story,” said Cr Makin.

“The play takes the form of a monologue which carries the audience through the journey of the day to day life of Mrs Joe Bradshaw, a 42 year old Liverpool mother and housewife bored with life and grieving the loss of the person she used to be,” said Cr Makin.

“Audiences are whisked to the sun kissed beaches of Greece as they follow Mrs Bradshaw in her attempt to reclaim her old persona and allow the Shirley Valentine deep within to emerge,” said Cr Makin.

Shirley Valentine will be performed at the Karralyka Theatre on Saturday 7 June at 8.00pm.

Tickets are $35 per person or $32 for concession. There is also an opportunity to enjoy a pre-show dinner at a cost of $29 per person, beginning at 7pm.

The Karralyka Centre is located on Mines Road, Ringwood East.
