by Nicky Sweetland - Mar 24, 2017

BWW Review: SHIRLEY VALENTINE, Richmond Theatre
by Aliya Al-Hassan - Mar 21, 2017

There are few male playwrights who have captured the female psyche as well as Willy Russell. The character of Shirley is both simple and complex. On one hand all she wants is to escape her life of regimented predictability, where her husband Joe demands his steak on a Thursday and the only source of entertainment is talking to her kitchen wall. On the other is the deep and heartbreaking aspect of wanting to return to her past, where she felt she had more worth and character. (more...)

West End Productions presents EDUCATING RITA
by BWW News Desk - Mar 15, 2017

It is the 1980s, Liverpool, England. Frank is a tutor of English in his fifties whose disillusioned outlook on life drives him to drink and to bury himself in his books. Enter Rita, a forthright 26 year-old hairdresser who is eager to learn and to change her social circumstances through the pursuit of higher education. Willy Russell delightfully weaves together the lives of these two unique characters, with great wit, humor and profound insight.

BWW Review: SHIRLEY VALENTINE, New Alexandra Theatre
by Emma Cann - Mar 10, 2017

Known for his strong female characters, from Educating Rita to Mrs Johnstone in Blood Brothers, Willy Russell's Shirley Valentine stands head and shoulders above his other work as an in depth exploration of what it was really like to be a woman in the 1980s.
