"Shirley Valentine" by Willy Russell
Shirley Valentine invites us into the life of a woman renegotiating her contract with the world. A working class woman with grown children confronts the conventions that define her life—her husband’s need for predictability to the class expectations of her friends.
A modest campaign of rebellion begins when she feeds her husband’s steak to her vegetarian neighbor’s dog. It escalates as she heads from chilly England to sunny Greece to find new definitions of herself.
