SHIRLEY VALENTINE

By Willy Russell
Starring Nora McLellan

Ever wonder what it would be like to escape your life and explore new horizons?  Shirley is a Liverpool housewife whose kids have left home and she now makes chips and eggs for her husband every night while talking to the wall.  Out of the blue, her best friend offers her a trip to Greece and she secretly packs her bags, heads for the sun and starts to see the world and herself very differently.

Audience Advice: This production contains adult themes. 

NORA MCLELLAN – SHIRLEY VALENTINE

Nora is thrilled to be back for her second season at VPP, after appearing in last year’s production of The Birds and the Bees by Mark Crawford. Since then she played Scrooge in A Christmas Carol for Theatre New Brunswick and will next be appearing in Renovations for Six by Norm Foster for The Foster Festival. For her performance in John by Annie Baker for The Company Theatre Nora received a Toronto Theatre Critics Award, a Dora Mavor Moore Award, and a My Entertainment World Award. Nora is one of Canada’s most renowned actresses. She has appeared on stages across Canada including the Shaw Festival, the Stratford Festival, the Charlottetown Festival, and Arts Club Vancouver. She has appeared on screen in Saving Hope, Orphan Black, Killjoys, X-Files, and Cardinal to name a few. Nora would like to thank David Latham, Heather Davies, Kelly Daniels, Nancy Benjamin, and Edda Sharp for their past work on Shirley Valentine, and David Hogan for letting me continue this beautiful story. She would also like to thank David Rogers for letting her back in the building! A huge shout out the company of VPP. A one person show is actually an ensemble of many players. Thank you!
