DeeDee Rescher at this one-woman show is amazing, she is super funny and manages to entertain the audience for more whole length of the show. Shirley Valentine written by Willy Russell and directed by Andrew Barnicle is a well thought and masterfuly directed show.

But when her best friend wins a trip-for-two to Greece, Shirley is suddenly pulled away from her boredom into a life-altering adventure. Faced with romantic possibilities and sudden self-awareness, Shirley begins to see the world, and herself, in a different light.
