Shirley Valentine

“A Holiday Is As Good As A Change”

Emotional when she wonders what happened to the carefree Shirley Valentine of her youth,
Terrified of what might happen to her if she left her husband,
and Philosophical when she contemplates how her old self “got lost in this unused life”

   Shirley’s routine was typical of an English working-class wife, no job, few friends, not much money, kids who have flown the nest, and a husband who is in an even deeper rut of his own. It’s a relatable tale of no one believing Shirley could make anything of herself. When Shirley is invited on a trip to Greece for more than two weeks in the sun,  it’s a chance to do something deliciously daring. She ditches her apron, buys a bikini, and reclaims abandoned dreams.
