Shirley is a housewife. Her kids have left home and she finds herself talking to the wall while she makes chips and eggs for her husband. What has happened to her life? Out of the blue, her best friend offers her a trip to Greece for 2 weeks and she secretly packs her bags. The note on the kitchen table reads "Gone to Greece back in two weeks." She heads for the sun and on a voyage of discovery starts to see the world and herself in a very different light.
Willy Russell's heart-warming comedy took the world by storm when it premiered in 1986. It was adapted into an Oscar-nominated film. Now, fresh from her appearance in the award-winning Derry Girls
, the extraordinary Tara-Lynne O'Neill stars in a revival of this vibrant comedy.
