Shirley Valentine on display Tuesday

Courtenay Little Theatre (CLT) invites members and the public to a staged play reading of Willy Russell’s hilarious comedy Shirley Valentine on Feb. 19 at the club’s Space.

The evening will begin with coffee, tea and snacks at 7 p.m., with the reading set to begin at 7:30.

Local community actor Jeannine Taylor, well-known for her comedic turn as Mother Superior in Nunsense, as well as other roles, will be featured in this one-woman show, produced by Gail Limber.

Taylor plays Shirley Bradshaw, a married mother of two grown children in Liverpool, who has had her self-confidence shattered by school, marriage, and life in general. She is reduced to talking to the wall.

Shirley’s humour, warm sympathy and human insight shine through as she struggles to break out of her humdrum existence.

Come along and laugh, cry and cheer for Shirley Valentine on Tuesday. Admission is open to the public and free of charge.   CLT’s Space is at 1625 McPhee ave.(behind JET-FM) in Courtenay.
