Wondering how she let vibrancy and joy slip out of her life, bored and disillusioned housewife Shirley Valentine finds herself talking to the walls. But when she chances on a trip to Greece, Shirley finds the adventure, hope, laughs and, ultimately, love she had been missing. Starring Mary Gannon Graham (Always…Patsy Cline, Woody Guthrie’s American Song) in a tour de force performance. This comic master- piece lifts our spirits and inspires us to embrace life in all its terrifying and delicious glory. Shillington and Graham previously collaborated on sold-out runs of Shirley Valentine in 2008 & 2011 at the Sonoma County Repertory Theater in Sebastopol and Cinnabar Theater in Petaluma.

“MUST SEE: Mary Gannon Graham plays Shirley Valentine to perfection. Shirley Valentine’s life-affirming discovery is nothing short of contagious.” — David Templeton – Northbay Bohemian, 2011

“If you haven’t seen Graham in this show, you should…If there’s only one actor, it had better be the right one. When the one chosen is Mary Gannon Graham, a dynamic performer since her early shows at Santa Rosa Junior College in the ’80s, all is well.”– Dan Taylor, Press Democrat 2008
